The World’s First ‘Star Wars’ Plane Just Landed, And Staff Uniforms… You Guessed It!
It might not be exactly the same as cruising through outer space on the Millenium Falcon, but this new Star Wars-themed airplane will still give plans plenty of reasons to rejoice. As with many over-the-top themed conveyances, this idea originated in Japan and just made its maiden voiyage over Haneda, Tokyo.
The plane is a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, and regular flights on the themed aircraft will begin soon. It's one of three planes that will attempt to recreate the Star Wars universe for passengers in the sky, and the photos from the first flight are simply delightful. See more of the story below.
The plane is painted like R2-D2, and guests dressed up like their favorite characters for the first flight.
Everything in the plane is on-theme.
The Star Wars fans who were invited to fly the plane for the first time were winners of a local contest.
Even the smallest of passengers got into the Star Wars spirit.
Naturally, Wookies are tall enough to reach all of the overhead bins.
Passengers won't be required to dress up in the future, but it does make things pretty fun.
Even the flight attendants have the force with them.
The plane will fly domestic routes in Japan, and international routes from Tokyo to Beijing, Jakarta, Sydney, Seattle, San Jose, Brussels, Munich, Paris and Vancouver, meaning that Star Wars fans from all over the world will have a chance to fly. Let's just hope they don't run into the Death Star.
