"And believe me, fellas, Sanchos cooks his beef in a very special way."
— Jansen

"Path of Destruction" is the second episode of Thunderbirds season 2, first broadcast on 9th October 1966.


The crew of a massive deforestation machine called the Crablogger are overcome by food poisoning while at the controls, leaving it to career through a rainforest. International Rescue are unable to stop it tearing through a nearby village, and Lady Penelope must secure the deactivation codes from the vehicles' designer before it destroys several more towns by crashing into a newly-built dam.
