Paolo Colombani was an Italian aviation pilot who appeared only in the adventure Flight 714.
Colombani is employed as the co-pilot of a private jet by the famous millionaire Laszlo Carreidas, the Carreidas 160. He was also one of the hijackers/conspiritors of that flight along with colleagues Spalding and Hans Boehm. They were all taken to an unknown fate by aliens. However it is likely that he is alive as Rastapopulus and Allan were seen alive in Tintin and Alph-Art. It is still unknown what the aliens did to them.
