Denis Lawson as Wedge Antilles. The only Rebel pilot to appear in all three films of the original Star Wars Trilogy. (Also he is the uncle of Ewan McGregor - Obi-Wan Kenobi in the prequels).
Biggs Darklighter, one of my best childhood friends that was in red squadron. He was shot down and killed by Darth Vader in the assault on the Death Star.
