Good news today for people of a certain age (okay, and children too): there’s going to be a new series of ‘Thunderbirds’ produced for UK channel ITV.
Thunderbirds set for 2015 re-launch

Gerry Anderson’s tales from Tracy Island are to be given a new-generation, CGI spin by ITV, Pukeko Pictures and Weta Workshop, according to a news release from the channel issued on 4 February. The first of 26 new 30min episodes will be aired during 2015, under the name ‘Thunderbirds are go!’
I could be opening a real can of worms here, but my aircraft choice would certainly be Thunderbird 2 (picture below via Rex Features): it will be interesting to see whether the new programme is true to its groundbreaking design for a strategic transport. Anderson died in late December 2012, about 50 years after his imagination had first started to inspire would-be aviators.
