The Japanese have produced a R2-D2-plane
The Japanese airline ANA seems to embrace Star Wars as a new basic design theme for their new aircraft.

The company has just released images of its new 787 Dreamliner aircraft that are painted so that it almost looks like a flying R2-D2.

Since both a plane and R2-D2 are cylindrical objects one does not need much imagination to see the similarity.

It's all part of an advertising campaign. And according to ANA, it is the first step in a five-year Star Wars campaign to promote the coming Star Wars movies.

There is thus reason to believe that the sky will soon be filled with more flying Star Wars Characters.

Unfortunately it does not seem that ANA has done anything with the inside of their planes, so the passengers are hardly in for a Star Wars journey.

Did you know? R2-D2 was inducted into the Robot Hall of Fame in 2003. The Smithsonian Institution included R2-D2 in its list of 101 Objects that Made America.
