Brussels Airlines unveils Aerosmurf aircraft

Brussels Airlines has unveiled the latest aircraft in its “Belgian Icons” series, featuring characters from comic franchise The Smurfs.

The Aerosmurf design (named after the title of a Smurf comic in which a character dreams to fly) was chosen from over 1,400 submissions, and took 14 days to paint, using 28 colours, 420 litres of paint, 24,000 metres of masking tape and 4,500 sqm of masking paper.

The Smurfs franchise celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, and the aircraft features 19 smurf characters as passengers and crew, including Smurfette as the captain and Papa Smurf as co-pilot.
