Alaska Airlines’ new Star Wars-themed plane

 Alaska Airlines made exact use of May the Fourth – Star Wars Day – to unveil a brand new Star Wars-themed aircraft.

The aircraft has the enduring Millennium Falcon emblazoned at the tail chased with the aid of TIE fighters and is a tie-in with Star WarsGalaxy’s Edge, the most modern land of adventure at Disneyland park.

The aircraft, with a tail wide variety of N538AS, has the Star WarsGalaxy’s Edge and Disneyland Resort trademarks within the middle of the fuselage. And you’ll see porgs, the cute avian creatures that lived on Luke Skywalker’s faraway island, on each winglets. Another porg is on the boarding door.

Here’s a groovy video displaying the plane being painted.

To make this take place, it took 228 gallons of paint implemented during 540 work hours over 27 days.
