Y-wing fighters are being unplugged from their ground systems in the Rebel
hangar at Massasi. For the figure at the Left, McQuarrie used a World War II
photograph of a Navy pilot running across the flight deck with a clipboard
in hand, changing the uniform but capturing the gesture. The pilots have
helmets which are capable of life-support, working automatically whenever
a malfunction in their aircraft occurs. The fighters are designed by Colin
Cantwell, revised by Joe Johnston.
