    Died today - the creator of Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlett, Stingray Joe 90, Fireball XL5 and many others!

    When World War II broke out, Anderson's older brother Lionel volunteered for the RAF and was posted to the United States for training. He often wrote to his family and one of these letters described a USAF airbase called Thunderbird Field, a name that stuck in his brother's memory

    A great talent and he wil be sadly missed.

    Cheers, Ade.
