Someone Photographed The New "Star Wars" Film Set By Accident

The picture clearly shows a half-built Millennium Falcon.

Here is a half-built Millennium Falcon and an in-progress X-wing fighter on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, unwittingly photographed by a man taking publicity shots for a flying school.

Matthew Myatt/Guzelian

Matthew Myatt captured Han Solo's ship – which can famously do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs – on Greenham Common in Berkshire while taking publicity shots for the Airbourne Aviation school in Hampshire.

It was only when he went through his pictures after landing that he noticed something "unusual".

I grew up with Star Wars but this is something I never thought I'd see in real life. It was a real shocker.

Photos of the Falcon being built were leaked in June – prompting this message from writer/director J.J. Abrams.
