Captain Hanson is a pilot employed by Air Terrainean. He specialises in flying Fireflash airliners, and is noted for piloting the aircraft's maiden flight. He was one of the subjects of International Rescue's first mission and subsequently helped to foil an attempt to sabotage the Fireflash fleet.
- Hanson's appearances in The Impostors and The Duchess Assignment are in fact reused clips from Trapped in the Sky.
- The same puppet also played Colonel Sweeney in Pit of Peril.
- The Hanson puppet was provided with two different heads: a normal head and a "blinker" head.
- Other puppets with multiple heads would have their heads temporarily replaced for the scene at hand, but oddly enough, Hanson's "Blinker" head is used throughout Trapped in the Sky, while his "Normal" head is used throughout Operation Crash-Dive. (As noted above, his other appearances are simply reused clips.)
