Aviation enthusiasts and Star Wars fans were treated to a very nice surprise on Wednesday 9th December 2015, as All Nippon Airways (ANA) flight NH231 NRT-BRU was operated with Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner JA873A nicknamed ‘R2-D2 ANA JET’.
The aircraft wears a striking Star Wars livery and was nicknamed ‘R2-D2 ANA JET’. It is the first of three ANA aircraft to wear a special Star Wars livery.
It was the third time that ANA operated the R2-D2 ANA JET to Brussels Airport. On the previous two occasions (4th and 6th November 2015), local weather conditions were much less favourable.
