"Flight of the Falcon, Part 3: Home Again" is the third comic in the Flight of the Falcon publishing line. It was published as the secondary story of Star Wars Adventures (2017) 16 on December 19, 2018.
On the Outer Rim planet Felucia, Bazine Netal was walking through the jungles when the shield of the bounty hunter, Embo went flying into a tree next to her. Embo pointed his bowcaster at Netal but she negotiated with him. Since Embo's funding from the New Republic was cutoff she was willing to pay him if he told her the information he knew on the Millennium Falcon.
Decades earlier, Lando Calrissian and Nien Nunb landed the Millennium Falcon at a space station for refueling. Nunb went off to the market to pick up supplies, while Calrissian worked on repairing the starship. Calrissian was disappointed in the way the current owners, Han Solo and Chewbacca maintained the ship. Calrissian checked over all the systems on the Falcon and was perplexed to learn that the systems were all fine.
But when he turned around there stood Embo, bowcaster aimed at Calrissian's head. Calrissian did not understand Embo's language but when Embo said "Death Star," he realized that Embo was after him. But Embo did not know what Calrissian looked like, which he used to his advantage. Pretending to be a cleaner, Calrissian told Embo that he must be looking for Solo but to it too far when saying that they should spit the bounty. Embo was about to shoot Calrissian but then a pipe burst knocking Embo back and disarming him.
Calrissian tied Embo up outside the ship and Nunb came back. Calrissian reported that the Falcon was ready and the two departed the space station.
Back on Felucia, Netal was disappointed that no one could seem to capture the Millennium Falcon. She reluctantly paid Embo but stopped when he told her that the Falcon had recently resurfaced. Embo provided her with information to where to look next and she went on her way.
"Flight of the Falcon, Part 3: Home Again" features the Millennium Falcon's rectenna, which was destroyed during the Battle of Endor. However, this comic takes place after the Battle of Endor, as it refers to the Death Star II as having been destroyed. Furthermore, this comic takes place shortly before "Hare-Brained Heist," which doesn't feature the rectenna.

Notes and references
- "Flight of the Falcon, Part 3: Home Again" takes place shortly before the events of "Hare-Brained Heist." "Hare-Brained Heist" takes place after the Battle of Endor, but before Han Solo replaced the Millennium Falcon's rectenna. As the Millennium Falcon has a new rectenna in Aftermath: Life Debt, "Hare-Brained Heist" must take place beforehand. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Endor to 4 ABY and further dates Shara Bey and Kes Dameron's move to Yavin 4 in 5 ABY. The move is placed six months after the Battle of Endor by Before the Awakening. Since Aftermath: Life Debt is set just after Shadow Fall, which takes place around six months after the battle, the events of Life Debt must also occur in 5 ABY, around six months after the Battle of Endor. Therefore "Hare-Brained Heist" and "Flight of the Falcon, Part 3: Home Again" both take place some time between 4 ABY and 5 ABY.
- The events of Flight of the Falcon takes place while the Resistance is on Batuu, which The Star Wars Book dates to 34 ASW4, which corresponds to 34 ABY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas.
