[UPDATE 25 October 2015: Winner Announcement! Congratulations to Willis Sia, Cheryl de Mello, and Wong Sau Yan! You each won a Star Wars R2-D2 X ANA stationery set!]

Picture yourself seated in an aircraft, with R2-D2 as a co-pilot.

But instead of taking on the Death Star or visiting the swamps of Dagobah in an X-Wing alongside R2, why not spend some quality time in the business class section of the new Star Wars R2-D2 ANA Jet, and be among the first in Asia, outside of Japan, to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience?

As the first ever real life Star Wars plane, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner’s livery is inspired by the famed astromech, and the plane is landing in Singapore Changi Airport this November. Japan’s only 5-star airline, ANA, is inviting 30 special guests on board, to experience life inside the galaxy’s most beloved droid (sorry BB-8, but R2 came first) on November 14.

With in-flight decorations inspired by the droid that everyone seems to be looking for, the R2-D2 plane will be decked out in a Star Wars themed interior, alongside Star Wars headrests and dining ware.
