Paolo "Redwing" McKay[1] is a Viper pilot aboard Galactica.

McKay participates in the Battle of New Caprica, flying as Brendan Costanza's wingman (TRS: "Exodus, Part II").

Later, McKay leads a CAP with Margaret "Racetrack" Edmonson and Hamish "Skulls" McCall, before the Raptor loses control and violently crash-lands in Galactica's port landing bay (TRS: "Escape Velocity").

McKay is part of the pilots stationed on the rebel Cylons' baseship for a joint attack mission on the Resurrection Hub. When the plan requires the human pilots to entrust their lives to the Cylons, he confronts a Number Six about her piloting skills, but is told to back off by Karl Agathon (TRS: "The Hub").

He participates in Gaeta's Mutiny, and is reported as leading a marine fire team to secure Galactica's engine room (TRS: "The Oath"). His fate following that event remains unknown.
