The Falcon and the Snowman

Millennium Falcon was the most famous spaceship amongst the Imperial troopers: elusive, mysterious, unpredictable and fast, boy, was the Falcon fast!

 

Little known fact: For the Imperial attack on Hoth, the troopers briefly practiced catching the Falcon with a flying scale model of the real thing. TK-24/7 was very proud of his job as the only trooper skilled enough to fly the target Falcon.

 

Actually, I just happened to hear the David Bowie theme song from The Falcon and the Snowman (a John Schlesinger movie, 1985) on radio today. I couldn't pass this.
