Rackham is getting a makeover

Rackham, still one of the most photographed planes in the world, will be part of the Brussels Airlines fleet until 2026.
Moulinsart and Brussels Airlines agreed to prolong their partnership and restore the aircraft painting in its original state. Disguised as the famous shark submarine from the Tintin album Red Rackham’s Treasure, the Airbus A320, baptized as “Rackham”, will then still cleave the air every day of the year in search of new adventures.

While the painting on the outside remains almost identical, the interior of the aircraft has been upgraded with more Tintin illustrations from the 12th album of the Adventures of Tintin.

The album Red Rackham's Treasure is available for reading on board in Dutch, French and English language, allowing the passengers – young and old – to dive into this adventure of Tintin and his friends.

Even after this wonderful plane is decommissioned, I hope they don’t destroy it!

A true piece of masterwork! Can't wait to fly on it! Before 2026, at least.
