One noticeable change to FireFlash other than the wing configuration at the stern of the plane is that it's much smaller in scale with only having 2 passenger seats in each row on either side of the plane. You'd think in future they'd expand not compress, right?
That discrepancy aside; I do like the scenario that the writers are going with on this. It's similar but different enough so that this FireFlash story can stand on it's own compared to the original half a century ago.
Also, in the "coming soon" clip that shows a snippet of the next to come, I couldn't help notice how the Foster Brothers have recreated the score from when Virgil used the elevator cars to rescue the FireFlash where we see Alan & Gordon drive the 2015 variation.
That and it's good to see those Brothers have a change from Underwater & Galactic rescues.
Bring on Saturday Morning.
Is it just me or does this series continue to get better with each episode?
A remake of Trapped in the Sky not withstanding, I like how it's paying homage to the very first episode of the original series, but adding some necessary changes.
Instead of attaching an explosive to the landing carriage of the mach 6 atomic air-liner in 1965, from the preview of this alone, it appears that the Hood has just straight up commandeered the plane.
Kayo being aboard is referencing Tin-Tin being aboard the original FireFlash on her flight to Tokyo. What she's doing on the flight of the 2015 FireFlash is unclear at this point.
And the passengers being made unconscious whilst "the Captain" walks through the aisle doesn't send warning signals, then I don't know what will.
