Thunderbirds Cast

The U.S. Army is testing a new vehicle designated Sidewinder, a gigantic mobile fortress capable of ‘walking’ across any terrain. But when the machine crosses a dumping ground for military equipment, the earth suddenly gives way and it falls into a blazing pit of fire. General Peters mounts a rescue attempt using military helicopters to retrieve the three man crew trapped inside the vehicle, but they are unable to pull the Sidewinderfree. Realising that his men will soon be burnt alive, General Peters decides to call in International Rescue
