Thread: Carreidas 160 Jet from Tintin's Flight 714

  1. Default Carreidas 160 Jet from Tintin's Flight 714

    Hey folks,

    I remember reading Tintin when I was a kid and remember seeing a suspersonic bizjet in one of the comics. Anyway I looked it up online and found some info. The Carreidas was designed by comic artist Roger Leloup for the Tintin series and is a Dassault-esque swingwing jet about the size of maybe a Gulfstream II. I found some pictures of it at;

    Also a good cutaway drawing at tintin.com
    look up 'Flight 714' on the popup window and look for a cutaway of the jet. It looks like a Falcon 10 mixed with a TU-134B and F-111. Interesting #2 engine design with the inlets part of the #1 and #3 fairings.

    I think this would be a very beautiful airplane to have in flight sim and flight dymanics would be at the whim of the designers. I imagine it would handle somewhere between a Citation X and F-111. I am curious if anyone would be interested in creating somthing like this.
    Cheers
