Thunderbird Two by WS-Clave Thunderbird Two by WS-Clave
Thunderbird Two is the large, main rescue rocket plane used by International Rescue.

It is capable of 5,000 mph (Mach 7.6) and can land vertically using thrusters. It is adaptable in use by means of Mission Pods housed within the main fuselage, and different pods can be quickly put in place before the mission begins.

Thunderbird Two is piloted by Virgil Tracy and launched on a landing strip within Tracy Island with the trees folding down to clear it's wings.

All the Thunderbirds were designed by Brains, the technical genius behind International Rescue.

The series was designed by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson and first broadcast in the UK in 1966.

Was that the Show Fireball? Actually from the side it looks a little like Lockheed SR-!00 Aurora! :D

Fireball XL5 was another show, this one was Thunderbirds, the original and best! :D

Team America got a lot of inspiration from Thunderbirds, especially the goofy way the puppets walk around...

I love the thunderbirds series. The movie fucked it up and the original story was better anyway. T-bird two, four and one are my all time faves

Yeah, I did *sort of* enjoy the film, but it was not the same as the original TV series, which I used to watch as a kid, and thought it to be completely wonderful...

As usual, very nice job!

And don't ask why, but it reminds me of the Airbus Beluga- I saw it doing aerobatics a couple of years ago, and I'm still amazed by its agility.
