Did you know, this year marks the 50th anniversary of the legendary TV series Thunderbirds?

Plus, there’s a brand-new show Thunderbirds Are Go coming to ITV next year! So balloon artist Brian Getz thought there was a reason to celebrate…

With a replica of the Thunderbird 3 rocket made from 2400 balloons!

If that wasn’t impressive enough, the sculpture took 9 hours to make! It takes us half an hour just to blow up one!

The rocket replica is 30 feet tall – about the same height as two double-decker buses!

You can see the actual Thunderbird 3 in the re-made series Thunderbirds Are Go on ITV and CITV in 2015.
