Potential Spoilers Ahead...
A familiar, nay iconic, fighter is put into position at the Cardington Air Base location in London (previously used in 1976 for the original STAR WARS), housing a part of the Rebel Alliance's contingent of old but souped-up Rebel craft, soon departing their secret base of Yavin IV and partaking in a gripping battle above and below the skies of the tropical world of Scarif. We're looking forward to a key effects sequence where a flight of cover fire support X-wings take on the ground-pounding blaster power of the Imperial's AT-ACT Cargo Walkers!

Don't be too surprised to see a few familiar pre-Battle of Yavin X and Y-wing fighter pilots appearing in ROGUE ONE, either, via clever ILM digital magic, come December 2016.
