Text of Thunderbirds Atlas

  • 1963-October

    The Wunder von Lengede, in the October of 1963 29 miners were killed and a further 21 were trapped when a dam collapsed

    flooding an iron mine in Lengede, West Germany. Local authorities lacked the necessary heavy recuse equipment to get to

    the miners, with the nearest suitable equipment being 100 miles away. This disaster gave Gerry Anderson the idea for a show
