This chapter considers the motif of airplanes and, more specifically, the ability to fly them that surfaces again and again in Hergé’s comics. The motif reveals not just an interest on the cartoonist’s part in airplanes, but the twentieth century’s slowly shifting understanding of what the airplane meant and what the skill to fly it signified.
