Flight 714 to Sydney -- Tintin and the Picaros -- Tintin and alph-art.
In 'Flight 714 to Sydney', Tintin, Captain Haddock and Professor Calculus are on their way to Sydney, Australia. Through a chance meeting they are invited to travel on board the private jet of billionaire Lazlo Carreidas. But then they fall victim to a plot to kidnap Carreidas and are captured by Tintin's arch enemy Rastapopoulos. In 'Tintin and the Picaros', Bianca Castafiore has been imprisoned by General Tapioca! Also accused of threatening Tapioca's dictatorship, Tintin, Calculus and Haddock jet off to the jungle HQ of the revolutionaries, and hatch a plot surrounding the upcoming carnival and Haddock's sudden and mysterious disgust for whisky. 'Tintin and Alph-Art' was never completed, but here is an insight into the work Herge had done on the project before he died.
