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
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".
