Report: 

Following up on the 2015 unveiling of their twin jet planes painted to resemble BB-8 and R2-D2, All Nippon Airways (ANA) unveiled their newest Star Wars themed jet plane just in time for this year's Celebration in Orlando, Florida.

The new jet, which was painted to look like C-3PO was the subject of a contest ANA was running at their oversized booth. Fans could draw a raffle ticket at the booth and the lucky winner would receive a 1:200 scale model of their new C-3PO plane autographed by the actor behind C-3PO, Anthony Daniels!

Other interactive displays included large-scaled models of their three Star Wars jets featuring autographs of several Star Wars actors including Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley and more. You could even have your photograph taken for free in front of the giant ANA banner with R2-D2 himself!

The staff at the ANA booth were without a doubt some of the most excited and energetic attendees at Celebration. Each of them had a smile on their face and wanted every one who entered their booth to have as much fun as they were.
