What is the story behind that the fact that the Millennium Falcon actually is in the set of Blade Runner? The producers must've known that the audience would recognize and debate it, and such a thing is rarely done when some stuff from one movie appears in another like that.

What is the special history about how the prop for the Falcon was included in Blade Runner?
