Hi all
not sure if this has been mentioned before but whilst watching the latest hopefully successful attempt to seal the crude oil leak using robot devices did anyone else think "Atlantic Inferno"?

Yup, a few weeks ago that thought crossed my mind too.

My thoughts wandered there too. Where is International Rescue when we really need them?:cool:

I thought of the whole thing too, it's like Gerry had the ability to see into the future. Maybe not; perhaps not too many similarities.

Though with "the Mighty Atom" and Chernobyl thing, that was draw dropping the similarities to me.

same thing crossed my mind to.
the oil didaster looks similar to "atlantic inferno"

but there are a lot of coincidental events:
-9/11 - episode "terror in new york city"
-Tjernobil - the mighty atom
-the BP oil spil - atlancic inferno
-apollo 13 - sun probe
-space station MIR's crash in 2001 - Ricochet

a lot of thunderbirds episodes appear to come reality in some sort of way, it seems scary, but its pure coincidence :)

but your right, we could use international rescue these days :rolleyes:

Ah good point.... but, as Jeff Tracy would see it, this would not be a case for International Rescue lol
