THUNDERBIRD 6 (1968). Director: David Lane.

Those darn puppet Tracys from International Rescue are back in action -- limited action -- when an airship or fancy dirigible built by scientist "Brains" is taken over in an effort to lead the Tracys into a trap. Lady Penelope and Parker are also on board as the airship sails across the world. Headman Tracy wants Brains to build a sixth Thunderbird machine, but rejects the scientist's concept, making him angry. Brains uses an old style WW1 plane to rescue his colleagues at the end. The climax is fairly exciting, but it goes on way too long. Brains wears over-sized eyeglasses and resembles Elton John.

Verdict: For Thunderbird fanatics only. **.
