Announced back in August, Japanese airline All Nippon Airways' R2-D2-themed jet finally took a side trip to Singapore and CNET got the chance to check out the Star Wars plane. The Singapore pit stop isn't the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner's usual route, as the plane will usually fly between Tokyo and Vancouver, as well as between Japan and other cities such as Beijing, Seattle, Paris, Sydney, Jakarta and San Jose, California.
The jet made the trip to bring Japanese tourists to the island-state for a three-day trip. The tourists also got the chance to check out the Star Wars attractions that were just completed at Singapore's Changi Airport (we'll get to those in a bit).
Singapore's Changi Airport is bringing the galaxy that's far, far away to those in Singapore and two of upcoming Star Wars film's starfighters have made an appearance at the airport. Located in the airport's Terminal 3, the iconic X-wing gives visitors a chance to put on Star Wars costumes and take a photo in the cockpit for free.
