Thunderbird 5 was the monitoring satellite belonging to the 'Thunderbirds' rescue organisation. Manned by John Tracy, Thunderbird 5 was usually the first to hear of any global disasters, and John often used the station to keep an eye on events that could develop into an emergency.
Thunderbird 5 was destroyed when The Hood and his goons launched a missile at it. It was part of a bigger plan to lure the Thunderbirds away from Tracy Island so that they could take it.
