On March 13, 2015, Brussels Airlines and Moulinsart unveiled A320-200 OO-SNB (msn 1493) with this striking livery inspired by the Belgian cartoon character Tintin. Both Belgian companies worked several months on the project, based on the original drawings by Herge. The livery features a 37m long black shark, based on Professor Calculus’ shark submarine from the Tintin adventure, Red Rackham’s treasure. The aircraft was baptized ‘Rackham’ and carries the legend ‘We fly you to the home of Tintin’ on the fuselage.
