(This is an X-Wing cockpit!)
At least 20 pilots are visible in the briefing room prior to the attack.
Only 2 X-Wings and 1 Y-Wing were shown flying away from the Death Star as it exploded.
(Oh, and the Millennium Falcon, of course.)

Several pilots are visible in Massassi Temple after the Death Star was destroyed.

Which Rebel ships were these pilots flying? Where were they during the attack?
