Commander Norman is the director of London International Airport. He has been present for several rescues effected by International Rescue, including their first ever.

Operation Crash DiveEdit

Commander Norman was in the control tower of London International Airport for the launch of Fireflash 3. When he lost radio contact with the Pilot, he launched "Operation Seahawk" but nothing was found of the Airliner.

Commander Norman held a briefing before the test flight of Fireflash 4 with the crew and other guests.

Edge Of ImpactEdit


Commander Norman is also assigned to the "World Space Control Project" in order to assist Colonel Tim Casey in the Red Arrow trials. The Central Control is based in the control tower at London and overlooks the Military side of the Airport.

Alias Mr HackenbackerEdit

Commander Norman was present at the test flight of Skythrust , a revolutionary new airliner designed by Brains. Along with Captain Saville and members of the press the demonstration was witnessed from the roof of Building 67.

Captain Saville's OfficeEdit

After the Skythrust demonstration, Captain Saville tells Commander Norman that "the plane is ready to go into service", and he agrees that the test "was most satisfactory". They both pass their congratulations on to the designer, Mr Hackenbacker.

London TowerEdit

Commander Norman, with guests Mr Hackenbacker and Tin-Tin, wait for the arrival of the Skythrust when it returns to Loddon for an emergency landing.


  • Norman makes a cameo appearance in the film Thunderbirds Are Go, where he appears to have been promoted to the Space Exploration Board. He can be seen sitting to the right of Space Colonel Harris at the Space Exploration Center meeting.
  • Norman's facial features look as though they were based on late actor and novelist David Niven.
