'Star Wars' Millennium Falcon ship found on Google Maps
UPI News Service, 11/18/2017
Han Solo doesn't have to worry about remembering where he left the Millennium Falcon -- eagle-eyed "Star Wars" fans spotted the spaceship in a Google Maps satellite view of farmland in Britain.
Twitter user Andi Durrant posted about the find Wednesday.
He said he discovered the famed ship after searching for Longcross Studios in Surrey on Google Earth and scrolling to farmland to the east.
The spaceship appears to be covered with a tarp and shielded from ground-level view by a number of shipping containers stacked around it.
Stu White, a motion-capture specialist who works for Pinewood Studios, which worked on "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," shared another Google Maps image showing the Millennium Falcon while it was being built for the film.
