Last night, I was watching Starwars: A New Hope, the original "first" Starwars movie. In the last battle scene all the rebel pilots take on the Deathstar, that planet-destroying, moon-shaped space station that threatens the universe. To save the universe, the brave men flew their orange and white X-wing fighters into battle.
I had a brief flashback of my childhood, and I remembered playing with a hand-me-down X-wing fighter toy (Image). It was the only aircraft I had, so I used it to strafe, bomb and rescue my toy soldiers from their enemies. It was a multi-purpose aircraft, providing close-air support, medevacs, etc.
