The force is with you young Skywalker, but ... you are know Jedi yet! Wonderful picture! It reminds me all the great episodes of Star Wars. This is His Majesty King of Universe Darth Vader. Cani greets:)

That's clearly not darth vader, he had a black helmet. This is white, so it's obviously a storm trooper...

Terrific shot though, an original perspective on the good ol' 747, great detailing with all the rivets

Very nice shot!!!but, for your information, in france we say "dark vador" instead of "darth vader" and "que la force soit avec toi" instead of "may the force be with you"...indeed it's a fantastic point of view of a 747, I never saw that before, makes me feel some fear...

Darth Vader... The only thing missing is the sound of his laborious breathing and that familiar music that heralds his arrival. Thanks for sharing such a 'Riveting' capture.
