Thunderbirds Are Go Cast

Having successfully retrieved a stolen Echelon Decoding Device and apprehended the thief, Kayo returns to Tracy Island in Thunderbird Shadow; but instead of congratulations she receives a reprimand from Scott, for chasing after bad guys when she should leave such matters to the police. Kayo defends her actions, arguing that she prevented an international disaster from happening, but is interrupted by a call from John in Thunderbird 5: the Central Air Command base known as CATCH has gone offline, and now over two thousand planes are stuck in the air with no way to land. Scott sends Kayo on a reconnaissance mission to CATCH, with strict instructions to leave any trouble to the Global Defence Force, while he and Virgil take to the skies in Thunderbirds 1 and 2 to help any aircraft in distress. Standing in for air traffic control, John and EOS in Thunderbird 5 intercept a mayday call from a stricken cargo plane, which collided with another aircraft while trying to evade a storm. Virgil uses Thunderbird 2’s grapple to halt the plane’s nosedive, and then remotely takes over control of Thunderbird 1 so that Scott can reach the aircraft’s emergency hatch. Entering the plane, Scott find the captain unconscious, so prepares to land the plane himself; unfortunately one of the plane’s wings snaps off, forcing Scott to crash land in the desert, the aircraft screeching to a halt to teeter precariously on the edge of a cliff. Meanwhile, Kayo arrives at CATCH and discovers that the base has been taken over by the Hood’s minions; overhearing the villain’s videocall to his goons, Kayo learns that the takeover of CATCH is merely a diversion, so that the Hood can steal a consignment of ulsterine fuel that will keep his nefarious operation running for years. Acting against Scott and John’s orders Kayo overpowers the goons and then goes after the Hood on her own…
