Built by the New World Aircraft Corporation, the Fireflash is the fastest and most prolific design of aircraft used in the mid-21st century. Following a number of sabotage attempts foiled by International Rescue, production of the Fireflash was stepped up, leading to an order for 500 aircraft from World Airlines and 150 for Air Terrainean.

Each tailplane nacelle contains three 'Atomus' jet engines. They are powered by an atomic fusion reactor. Power is generated via the heat exchanger through conduits built into the tailplane to the rear of the cockpit entry system.

Access to the cockpit is gained via a lift or adjacent emergency ladder from the engineering deck.
