Nite Owl first used the Owlship in his crime-fighting activities during the 1960's. The Owlship was present in the Police Strike of 1977 when Nite Owl and The Comedian were quelling rioters in New York City. After Nite Owl retired, the Owlship was put in storage in the expansive basement of Daniel Dreiberg's home.

In 1985, Owlship was flown again when Dreiberg and Laurie Juspeczyk decide to go out adventuring again. Afterwards, Dreiberg and Juspeczyk used the ship break out Rorschach from Sing-Sing. Later, Nite Owl and Rorschach flown the Owlship to Antarctica to confront Adrian Veidt.
