- "One false move now and I've had it!"
Lieutenant Bob Meddings is a member of the air crew employed by Air Terrainean. When Fireflash had a bomb placed in its landing gear, Meddings conceived the idea of putting a man into the undercarriage using a TX-204 Target Carrying Aircraft.
He volunteered for the highly dangerous mission. Although the attempt failed when Meddings lost his grip and fell out of the wing, he survived the fall to the ground when his parachute deployed.
- Bob Meddings was named in honour of Thunderbirds Art Director Bob Bell and visual effects supervisor Derek Meddings.
- The same puppet also played the Seahawk Pilot (Air Sea Rescue) in Operation Crash-Dive, still wearing the same uniform. In Terror in New York City, it played First Officer Clayton.
