Stormtrooper wannabes buckled up for Star Wars-themed plane’s first passenger flight
All Nippon Airways’ Star Wars-themed plane designed to look like R2-D2 took its inaugural passenger flight Saturday. Lucky fans dressed in costume took the virgin voyage over Haneda, Tokyo
Regular flights on the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner are set to begin Sunday. The plane is the first of three that the airline, in partnership with Disney-owned Lucasfilm Ltd., plans to decorate to fit in with the Star Wars universe. The R2-D2 paint job was unveiled last month.
