Red 5: Luke Skywalker and R2D2

Red Five was Luke Skywalker's callsign in the Battle of Yavin, during the Galactic Civil War as a member of Red Squadron. The squadron was an Alliance Starfighter Corps X-wing squadron active during the Galactic Civil War and gained the distinction of being the unit that brought down the Death Star's defenses as well as ultimately destroying the station itself. But the victory came at a price. Almost the entire squadron was destroyed, except for two X-wings flown by Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles.  -- paraphrased from Wookiepedia
