  •  THIS one really took me back... (6+ / 0-)

    ....to Supermarionation, and the sad, recent, loss of Gerry Anderson. Of course, I went back to review the OTHER favourites of my youth, which included 'Fireball XL5' (I didn't see 'Four Feather Falls'), and, of course. 'Stingray' (a sort of underwater Supercar) which solved several problems, in that the 'boss' character was confined to a motorized wheelchair, and could provide the 'movement' in a scene, and the 'love interest' - a mermaid, could not speak, so there were no difficult moving mouth parts!

    A genius...or TWO I should say, as he and his wife, Slyvia showed in their excellent sci-fi series for adults 'U.F.O.'

    Please note - for absolute aviation buffs - the Handley Page Jetstream prototype which they were trying to sell to the USAF as the C-10A ! (Production started, ordered cancelled, none delivered)

    Great job, Xaxnar!

    'Per Ardua Ad Astra'
