In honour of the iconic movie series 'Star Wars', the Japanese airline All Nippon Airways will paint one of its brand-new Boeing 787s with an R2-D2 motif.

The R2-D2 jet marks the start of five-year All Nippon Airways "Star Wars" project, which will include "a range of novel initiatives," the airline announced on its website.

The jet has been flagged for international routes. As for whether it might one day carry passengers to a galaxy far, far away - well, that's still up in the air.
