Thunderbirds Are Go Cast

As an experiment in proactive police work, Scott agrees to help the Global Defence force with an undercover sting operation to apprehend a thief named Banino, who has stolen a powerful repulsor magnet ray device from Houseman Industries. Arriving at an airfield for a nocturnal rendezvous with his buyer, Banino is met by a black-hued FAB1 chauffeured by Lady Penelope for Parker, now posing as Paco Mendozia. The operation is closely monitored by Colonel Casey at GDF headquarters, who has a capture squad on standby to make the arrest; unfortunately, the GDF have recently employed the incompetent Ned Tedford and his pot plant Gladys, and thanks to a mishap with some tea and Battenberg cake, the squad is launched too early. Banino panics and uses the repulsor to incapacitate the soldiers, steal their flyer and escape with Parker and his suitcase of gold-pressed lindium. Kayo sets off in Thunderbird Shadow in pursuit of Banino, but comes under attack when the crook deploys heat-seeking air mines; Kayo expertly evades the aerial assault, so Banino smashes the flyer’s controls and absconds in a micro-glider, leaving Parker to his doom. Scott decides to intervene and mobilises Thunderbird 1, while Kayo flies after Banino and Penelope tracks her butler in FAB1. Parker manages to crash-land the stricken GDF plane in a junkyard, but the underground workshop below collapses, trapping a workman inside. As Scott comes to the rescue in Thunderbird 1, Penelope tries to save Parker from the plane as it teeters perilously over a chasm…
