Alaska Airlines made top use of May the Fourth – Star Wars Day – to unveil a brand new Star Wars-themed aircraft.
The aircraft has the iconic Millennium Falcon emblazoned at the tail chased through TIE combatants and is a tie-in with Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the most up-to-date land of adventure at Disneyland park.
The plane, with a tail range of N538AS, has the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Disneyland Resort emblems inside the middle of the fuselage. And you’ll see porgs, the adorable avian creatures that lived on Luke Skywalker’s faraway island, on each winglets. Another porg is at the boarding door.
Here’s a fab video showing the plane being painted.
To make this show up, it took 228 gallons of paint implemented at some point of 540 paintings hours over 27 days.
