Elliot's spacesuit has the markings of the United States air force on his helmet and arm patch with a shield design. The jet pack is controlled by buttons on his arm.
Elliot Goes Haywire
Space Observatory 3, a scanning satellite covering the South Pacific region, is out of action with an antenna fault. Technician Elliot suits up and goes outside to effect repairs, but his jet pack goes haywire, thrusting him away from the satellite. Too small to register on radar, Elliot has just three hours of oxygen left. Only International Rescue can save him.
Thunderbird 3 to the Rescue
Risking exposure, Jeff sends Scott and Alan in Thunderbird 3 to rescue Elliot. They soon get a bearing on the astronaut and recover him from space.
- The Elliot puppet is also seen at the scene of the Fake Rescue earlier in the episode. It played the sergeant at Satellite HQ in Cry Wolf, as well as Dick O'Shea, the assistant controller of Seascape, in Atlantic Inferno. He appears twice in Alias Mr. Hackenbacker: as a customer at the Café Atalante, Paris, and as a reporter at Building 67 - London Airport.
- Some sources erroneously spell his name as Elliott. One such source is The Complete Book of Thunderbirds.
