At a disused airfield in the Sahara Desert, Collins and Ross wait for the airliner (Skythrust) to arrive, which has has been hijacked by co-conspirators Madeline and Mason. Ross stands by on the radio waiting for a message from the plane.
A Wait in VainEdit
Unbeknown to the gang, Skythrust has been diverted to London Airport after Thunderbird 2 disabled the undercarriage by means of a non-explosive missile.
Instead of the suspected arrival of the hijacked aircraft, Thunderbird 2 swoops in and delivers a devastating blow with another missile - but this time, it is an explosive one, leaving the two criminals well and truly battered.
