Star Wars geeks are spaced out by pics

Star Wars fans' expectations went sky high after a photograph of the Millennium Falcon and an X-wing fighter was taken from the air and published online.

The picture, showing the spacecraft prop on set at Greenham Common in Berkshire, was taken from a flight school plane flying over the area.

It was tweeted by Airbourne Aviation Ltd who said: "Come and book a trail #flight with us and fly over the #StarWarsEpisodeVII set. Your never know what you might see.!!"

Star Wars: Episode VII reunites many of the cast of the original films including Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher (inset).

The cast and crew have also done some filming at the remote Kerry island of Skellig Michael.
