But even after watching it multiple times, fans can't find C-3PO, that's because Daniels doesn't play the droid. Co-writer Jonathan Kasdan says that Daniels' character appears in one of the trailers for the movie.

The Asiana Airlines A330 (registered HL7792) was taxiing as flight number OZ552 from Istanbul Atatürk to Seoul Incheon, when it struck the Turkish Airlines A321 (TC-JMM).

Footage likely taken with a smartphone camera shows white smoke rising after the main wing of the Asiana severed the tail fin of the Turkish airliner. "The collision resulted in a fire on the Turkish jet, forcing fire crews to rush to the scene".

The Asiana's A330 wide body jetliner was bound for Incheon, scheduled to depart from Turkey at 5:30 p.m. local time.

A video of the incident went viral on YouTube.

236 passengers were aboard the Korean jet, and 217 more aboard the Turkish jet.
