The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is preparing for the Paris Air Show and it’s showing off a little. Okay, it’s showing off a lot. Check out the take-off on this baby at :35! It’s nearly VERTICAL. I pray this is for the air show only and not the norm. I don’t want to feel like I’m in a rocket when I am traveling. Unless I am going to the moon.
Thanks to EverybodyHatesATourist.Net for bringing this to my attention. This has to be the coolest things I have seen painted on a plane in years. Japan’s All Nippon Airways (ANA) has painted a plane to look like the StarWars icon, R2-D2. It’s part of an overall StarWars deal with the Japanese carrier. No word yet on just where R2 will be flying, but I doubt it will be to a Galaxy, Far, Far Away (Sorry, I had to!).
Check out R2 in flight below!
