A Brussels Airlines' Airbus A320 with a special livery inspired by the Tintin comic book “Red Rackham’s treasure” was unveiled at the airlines’ Brussels Airport home base in Belgium.
The aircraft is named “Rackham” after one of Tintin’s most popular adventures. The unique livery represents a great black shark, based on the shark shaped submarine invented by popular character Professeur Tournesol in the comic book.
The painting was carried out by aircraft paint artist Andre Eisele in Ostrava, Czech Republic and took 1,500 man hours in total. The special livery will remain until 2019.
