Japanese Airliner ANA Designed a Brand New R2-D2 Jumbo Jet! Well, Kind Of….

By: | April 20th, 2015

Japanese airline ANA announced a new Star Wars R2-D2 jumbo jet last week that has people freaking out.

While the plane does resemble the loveable droid from the series, the plane is actually just a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner with droid wrappings.

Regardless, I would be super stoked to see this thing in the sky and/or get a chance to fly on it at some point.

I mean how many times in your life will you travel on an R2-D2 jumbo jet?

ANA is launching a five-year “Star Wars Project”, meaning there will be more Star Wars-themed airliners on the way!

As for the R2-D2 plane, it is scheduled to begin service on the airline’s international routes this fall.
