Andy Durrant posted on Twitter his discovery of the Millennium Falcon whilst searching for Longcross Studios Surrey on Google Earth. After the location shows up, Durrant says that you need to “scroll into the right into some farmland and you can find the Millennium Falcon hidden behind some shipping containers”. Although the freighter is covered, the shape is quite visible and easy to identify. The Millennium Falcon is considered the “fastest ship in the galaxy”, and has had quite an adventurous journey throughout.
Durrant’s tweet even garnered the attention of film/game animator Stu Whitten who replied saying that the Falcon in the making can be spotted at Pinewood Studios on Google Earth. Durrant’s finding surely excited Hyperspace as expected and the replies were all in Stars Wars fashion. ALSO READ: Apple Clips update adds AR selfie backgrounds, Star Wars effects for iPhone X
