The Flying Circus is a supporting antagonistic faction of the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger. It is a female aviator team led by Pussy Galore under the employ of Auric Goldfinger of Auric Enterprises until the events of the film.
They were portrayed by Maggie Wright, Aleta Morrison, Jane Holland, Jane Murdoch, Maise Farrell, Caron Gardner and Lesley Langley.
Being under the employ of Goldfinger, the Flying Cirus were tasked to spread the Delta 9 nerve gas across the area of Fort Knox that will kill 60,000 people in order for Goldfinger to lead his task force (led by Oddjob and Kisch) to smuggle a nuclear bomb (created by Mr. Ling) into the vault. Such an action would make the gold radioactive and useless for 58 years, and that the value of Goldfinger's gold will increase many times, thus making Goldfinger the richest man in the world.
Upon the arrival of James Bond (as he was invited to personally witness the preparations of the operation after being captured by Goldfinger), the Flying Cirus were seen landing their planes before greeting Galore, who assures that they will get their assignments tomorrow night. She then dismisses them for the day before transporting Bond to Goldfinger's ranch, where Bond learns of Goldfinger's plot.
With that in mind, Bond seduced Galore into foiling Goldfinger's plan, so she had the Flying Circus to replace the nerve gas with a harmless one while alerting the U.S. government about Goldfinger's plan. It is unknown what happened to the Flying Circus following the deaths of Goldfinger and his men.
