Hergé, Tintin - et les avions
From the Soviet fighter Polikarpov (1929) to the American jumbo aircraft Boeing 747 (1976), Tintin’s Adventures retrace the exciting epic of aviation. No less than fifty planes are introduced to us.
Under Hergé’s pen, the plane means more than fast transport. It becomes a real protagonist of the action, like the Stratonef of the Adventures of Jo and Zette or the Carreidas, the supersonic business plane of Flight 714 to Sydney.
The author José Miguel de la Viuda Sainz, an aeronautical engineer, scrutinizes Hergé’s choices and analyses his singular talent, which is inspired by reality to create an imaginary work.
