Elevator Cars are specialized vehicles used by International Rescue.
There are two variants of the Elevator Car, one which is manned and acts as the control vehicle for the remaining three, which are controlled remotely. They are used to assist aircraft in emergency landings, such as when their landing gear has failed or is inoperable for some reason. They are manoeuvred into position beneath the target aircraft and act as replacement landing gear. They are carried in Thunderbird 2's Pod 3.
