All Nippon Airways in the past have painted their planes in different liveries (such as their Pokemon Jets). Well, the Japanese carrier are to paint a Boeing 787-9 into the colours of… R2-D2 from Star Wars.
Well, R2-D2 is reliable and heroic – always saving the day in every Star Wars flim.
This could be the plane you are looking for to paraphrase Ben Kenobi.
ANA have also prepared a lovely flyover video.
The R2-D2 jet will fly on ANA’s international network from Autum/Fall 2015.
And if you’re a Star Wars fan, or geek, or a nerd – like me, you’ll want a tracker for this plane so you get the camera out and track this bird when flies.
