Norwegian has chosen the late English footballer Bobby Moore, who died in 1993, to become the latest British tail fin hero to appear on its new aircraft.
The airline has a tradition of honouring figures in this way, featuring personalities who symbolise the spirit of Norwegian through innovation, leadership and inspiring others.
Moore, who had a 25-year career as a professional footballer which established him as a world leader, will become Norwegian’s fourth British hero, following children’s author Roald Dahl, pioneering pilot Amy Johnson and aviation maverick Sir Freddie Laker.
Norwegian chief commercial officer Thomas Ramdahl said: “Bobby Moore was an iconic footballer and leader and a true gentleman, so we are honoured to have him appear on our aircraft.”
The Bobby Moore tail fin will take to the skies later this year on a Norwegian B737-800.
In the UK, Norwegian operates from Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and Belfast, carrying more than 5m passengers a year to 50 destinations, including the UK’s only direct low-cost flights to the US.

All credit to Norwegian for this tribute to an English footballing hero but why does it take a Norwegian airline to come up with the idea??
