Virgil shoots a magnetic cable into the landing gear compartment
While Alan climbs into the Zero-X, Brains works out a course of action.
The escape pod aboard Zero-X is malfunctioning. Alan has got five minutes to repair it.
Fate seems to have decided over Zero-X and its crew but at the very last moment the escape pod ejects from the plane.
The position where it's going to crash is known and a village has been evacuated just in time.
Lady Penelope has taken FAB 1 to the disaster area. With Alan still hanging on to the cable, Thunderbird Two hurries to meet FAB 1.
Nice of you to meet me here, Penny.
The pleasure is all mine, Alan. And I have a surprise for you.
That night, Lady Penelope takes Alan to the nightclub.
This place is great, Penny.
The surprise is even bigger when Alan discovers his father and the rest of the Tracy family
Father, I hadn't recognised you with that beard.
We're all here to congratulate you, Alan. You're the hero of the day.
