This is a list of all the missions Thunderbird 1 took part in, and the equipment it used.
Trapped In the SkyEdit
The Fireflash is unable to land, due to the fact that The Hood has planted a bomb in the landing gear. Thunderbird 1 arrives at London International Airport and Scott Tracy (after setting up his mobile control), assesses the situation. While Scott is organizing the rescue, the Hood, disguised as a police officer, takes photographs of Thunderbird 1. The Automatic Camera Detector alerts Scott, and Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward is sent to retrieve the photographs.
Pit of PerilEdit
After the Sidewinder fell into the pit, Thunderbird 1 is rushed to the scene. Using the Remote-Control Hover Camera, Scott learns that the pit was once an open-cast mine which had been used as a military equipment dump.
City of FireEdit
As Scott returns from the scene of a fire in Tokyo, Thunderbird 1 is shot down in the Sahara Desert by three unidentified fighter jets. Scott cracks his head as Thunderbird 1 crashes into the sand dunes, but he is found by two explorers, Wilson and Lindsey, who administers first aid. Scott returns to rescue the explorers when they are trapped inside a pyramid by the mysterious Zombites.
