This IS the Droid (Plane) You’re Looking For! #StarWars #R2D2


Another unveiling at this year’s Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, CA are images of an R2-D2 painted plane from All Nippon Airways.  The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will see its first flight fall of 2015, just months ahead of the opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.


According to All Nippon Airways, they felt a connection to the lovable astromech droid.  As posted on their website:

“In the long adventurous journey, R2-D2 reached a unique personality. Highly loyal and whenever he faces challenge he comes up with an original idea to succeed the mission.”

Check out the official video released by All Nippon Airways…
