Melody Angel is the code name that the Spectrum Organisation has assigned to Magnolia Jones, late of Atlanta, Georgia.
Magnolia Blossom Jones grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, and has several brothers.
As a World Army Air Force pilot, she disappeared for a year, only to reemerge flying an aircraft she had scratch-built from the remains of the very one she had crashed the year before.
Behind the scenes
Sylvia Anderson, who had helped create the 1960s series, provided her voice for the character.
Melody Angel, along with Lieutenant Green and Harmony Angel, represented a forward step for the then Anderson spouses's productions, in that she was not a Caucasian character. Indeed, that she was black, and of Southern birth and rearing, was a bow and a nod to the civil rights movement in progress in the United States at the time. It is not known, however, who the model was or who the models were for the Super-marionation puppet of her.
Esther Jackson, voiced by Heather Tobias, is codenamed Melody Angel in the newer Hyper-marionation programme.
