United Airlines confirms Star Wars plane to take the skies!

Sadly we won’t be seeing this one in Australia, but if you’re a Star Wars nerd (that’s you Stephen Fenech) and you’re in the USA in the next year, book some United Airlines travel, you might just hop aboard this special bird:

Spotted by rabid Aviation Geek Jason Rabinowitz at United’s annual conference in Chicago, it’s one hell of a mock-up.

But better still, it’s not just a model – it’s being painted right now.

The aircraft will go back into service soon as United CEO Oscar Munoz confirmed to Jason it is more than just a model:

A true test of your Star Wars allegiance will be your seat booking.

Take the left-hand set of seats (A,B,C) and you’re a Jedi. Choose the right-hand set of seats (likely D,E,F) you’re on the Dark Side folks.

It’s all part of a massive promo run ahead of the release of the final instalment of the Skywalker Saga – “The Rise of Skywalker” in December.

Awesome stuff. Star Wars fans, talk to Stephen Fenech about your problems. Aviation Geeks, follow Jason Rabinowitz for total AvGeek joy.
