Land at Rapid City Regional, United’s dark side does

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Flying solo into Rapid City Regional Airport was United Airlines’ famous Star Wars 737-800.

Making the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, this wannabe Millenium Falcon landed in Rapid City for the first time Thursday night.

It may have been Jar Jar-ing to passengers to see the United rebel, as it’s one-of-a-kind. The airline unveiled the design last year prior to the launch of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Since then, this skyfaring starfighter has traveled galaxies far, far away, carrying empire and rebels alike.
