The Meaning Of F.A.B!
This COULD prove to be interesting as it's to do with the meaning of the phrase F.A.B! :rolly2:
Some place say thta it doesn't mean anything, but according to the offical 'Thunderbirds' website it does mean something & DESTINED to appear in the next edition of the dictionary :rolly2: :rolly2:
Bascially, it is the call sign of International Rescue & when Jeff Tracy was looking for something short like 'Roger', he though of of & then decided to spell it out & add dots between the letters & so was 'born the phrase F.A.B! :rolly2: :rolly2: :rolly2:
It would be interesting to see other 'Thundrfans' ideas on whether it means anything or not

Thanks, one of the main reasons I came in here was to find out what F.A.B. was supposed to mean. :lol:
I just got my hands on a DVD of "Thunderbirds Are Go" and watched it. Not sure if the series was first though and if so maybe I'd have understood it better knowing more background.
I did rather injoyed it and almost stopped it before the very best part! The marching band at the end of it.

It doesnt mean anything as previously said is slang for every thing is good great cool hunky dory exellent spiffy etc etc.
Gerry Anderson said in numurous interviews that it wasn't supposed to mean anything except everythings is good.
