In the 100 days leading up to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I am counting down my 100 favorite things about Star Wars. Here is today’s entry:
#11: X-Wing Fighter
The Incom T-65 X-Wing starfighter is the workhorse of Rebel Alliance. It’s the ship that killed the Death Star, among many, many other missions. It fits one pilot and one R2 astromech droid, for navigation and repairs. I love it’s now iconic look. It reminds me for old World War II planes, like the P-38 Lightning. But it’s the ‘s-foils’, the movable wings that made it stand out in the Star Wars universe. And it made a hell of a fun toy too!
