A new take on the Star Wars theme: It’s made with nothing but airline noises

One of my favourite airlines in the world is Japan’s All Nippon Airways. Damn good service. I remember connecting in Tokyo to an ANA flight to Singapore. When it was time for boarding, all the gate attendants came out from behind the desk. There was a bong on the PA and all of them bowed to the passengers, informing them that we could now get on the plane.

ANA is also famous for painting is planes in various livery themes, including Star Wars. For this project, the airline had employees capture all manner of sound from the daily operation of an airline. All these sounds and noises were then assembled into this.
