Harold Edgarton from Airframe is the president for Norton Aircraft. When Flight 545 goes down he is upset that the bad press will make his deal with China fail, adn if hat happens that eh will have to close another aircraft facility. He puts a lot of pressure on Marder to do what he must to make sure that the China deal isn't hampered. Of course, what he doesn't realize is that Marder has gone behind his back and brokered a tentative deal with Korea. When Edgarton learns what Casey has done to save the company, he promotes her and gives her a raise.
