   This weekend one of the local stations (Los Angeles) broadcast 
"Countdown to Disaster", a film using two of the old Thunderbirds 
episodes.  It had a 1982 copyright, and had some computer-type 
animated titles.  Other than that, it was the same old terrific 
Supermarionation.
   The episodes involved rescuing 2 newsmen from the wreckage of the
Empire State building, and saving 2 workers trapped in a diving sphere
underneath a collapsing oil rig.
   I vaguely recall a TB discussion about 18 months ago, but I need to 
ask this question: What does F.A.B. mean?  The members of International
Rescue use it in their radio communications as others might use roger,
wilco, or A-OK.  The letters are pronounced individually, "ef-ay-bee".

Thanx,
Steve (carroll@isib)

	F.A.B. --> fab --> fabulous 		right?

	Lady Penolope's Rolls had the licence plate FAB 1.

	Remember this show was made in the 60's Carnaby Street era
	when "fab" was a popular expression.
