Thunderbird One
Thunderbird One is the fast response, variable geometry, rocket plane used by International Rescue.

It is capable of 15,000 mph (Mach 22.6) and can reach any point on Earth within an hour.

Thunderbird One is piloted by Scott Tracy and launched vertically from within Tracy Island below the swimming pool with slides aside when needed.

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.
