Norman Payne was Sir BAA. It was under his leadership that Gatwick and Stansted were created, as well as Terminal 4 at Heathrow and Gatwick North Terminal. In so doing Payne settled London Airports' capacity from the early 1980s until well into the present century, fuelling the opportunity for the UK's expansion in civil aviation. He was engineer, planner, Chief Executive, Chairman and leader. Of all the nationalised industry chairmen he was the most successful and longest serving. And in 1982 he saw through privatisation efficiently and against much political objection, holding the British Airports Authority together.
