On a X-Wing and a Prayer

XWing Fighter

Some war museums are proud to lay claim to the only existing example of a Tiger tank or Arado AR-234 bomber, but the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum has the dubious honor of being able to display its very own Star Wars X-Wing fighter. Seen in a number of feature films, the replica Incom T-65 X-Wing comes complete with a scale version of an X-Wing pilot and its droid, and shows some telltale scarring and residual effects you would come to expect from battling amidst the stars.

For more information, head on over to their web site, Wings Over the Rockies, where you can learn how the museum obtained the replica and all of the hard work that went into its restoration.

On a separate note, we can only hope that Disney is watching and listening and will hopefully create a Star Wars museum within its proposed Star Wars-themed park, complete with a cornucopia of Star Wars-related ships and vehicles. Now wouldn’t that be cool?
