Fireflash 4 is an aircraft featured in Operation Crash-Dive. Soon after it launched, it experiences difficulties and crashes into the sea. However, the flight has been monitored by Alan Tracy on Thunderbird 5 and he is able to report that the craft is actually some 180 miles northwest of the position reported by the crew.
The Cockpit's ControlsEdit
The cockpit's control panel contains many kinds of indicators and switches, including flight plain, ground burst indicators and automatic power units, to name but a few, needed for the crew to fly the plane.
The crew lose control of the plane and it crashes into the sea.
After Fireflash 4 settles on the sea's surface, she quickly sinks to the seabed. The crew are stuck inside, as the escape hatch is stuck fast.
Thunderbird 4 is able to find the stricken plane and cuts off the engines to allow the plane to float back to the surface.
