Flying photography looks epic. My Navy jet jock Dad (flew just about everything over 30 years - Navy and Air Force) and 2 brothers (one an F-18 pilot and the other an F-14 RIO) will enjoy that.

How did they enjoy the first one? I always find it interesting watching or hearing about pilots watching movies like that..

One of my brothers is a former Naval Flight Officer that knew several guys that were actual flyers in original Top Gun movie, including some that were also in the background singing in Maverick & Goose's bar singing scene. He said it is a typical Hollywoodized movie with unrealistic plot (e.g., Maverick and Iceman getting immediate orders to depart after graduation ceremony to face the Russian threat was silly as if they were the only pilots in the Navy). But the main thing I recall that he said was that Maverick would have been immediately kicked out of the Navy on his first flyby/buzzing the tower...not lectured. He never would have flown again for the Navy after that stunt. And he pointed out that we would never need to get that close to enemy aircraft as portrayed in movie. He also noted that the dangers of the job, somewhat glossed over, but also demonstrated in Goose's death, are quite real, as he lost lots of friends in flying accidents, including his best friend.

Thanks! I had heard that there were changes made to the engines because of people getting caught in the "jetwash"...I'm probably saying that wrong...

This is what google is for..

Agree with Holmes here. They thought the plot was cheesy and a lot of the flying was not necessary as shown due to available weapons systems at the time. But pilots are pilots, so the flying is always cool.
The dangers of the job, yeah. My brother (F-14 RIO) was flying at 30k ft out over the ACMR (Air Combat Maneuvering Range) out off Hatteras when the cockpit glass came of the F-14. That structure is 12 ft long a weighs well over a 1000 #. He and the pilot were lucky it didn't rip their head off when it left the plane. They luckily had their oxygen masks on and the pilot took the plane down to the deck and flew back at barely 100 knots all the way back to Oceana. A cold, brutal, long flight.
My brother left the Navy the nexy year.

Are the guys who drew the large sky member still flying? I don't think they were dismissed. Could be wrong.

...I woke up to the Top Gun theme song everyday in 9th grade

I'm sorry, I don't hear any kenny loggins so it must not be top gun

He had originally committed to the soundtrack last Fall but after careful thought and prayer he re-opened his recruitment. My understanding is that Ghostbusters and Trolls World Tour are heavy favorites to land him.

Portal got him too?

NOW THAT IS A TRAILER THAT MAKES ME WANNA SEE THE MOVIE.

This is truly one of the greats for sure. But to me, the tops will always be the rendition by Honest Trailers:

I just watched this and I am still crying! OMG!

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Is anybody else feeling the need?

ESPN. The coverage is excellent, you'd be surprised at how much you can pick up.

This will be a theater movie for me.

So no danger zone? He is 55 and still flying as a captain? Up and out!

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

I thought it was up OR out.

Colonels dont really fly, major need to work on their golf game to make Colonel, and Maverick doesnt strike me as a golfer. So Pretty much Captian is as high as he can go.

USN Captain = USAF Colonel
USAF Captain = USN lieutenant

Still flying as a Captain probably means CAG.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Whoops, some how forgot he was Navy. But still as an 06 he would be forced out at his age.

he learned that one weird trick where he keeps getting promoted but then immediately does something to get demoted so he can keep flying

Seriously did anybody figure out how to land the plane in top gun on NES?

"I am probably too rational to be here"

I watched a neighbor do it once, he died pretty quickly on the next stage

Pray there isn't a topless volleyball scene with Val Kilmer.

Looks like a football montage this time.

Click here to destroy wall.

He's going to make a cameo but his health has been really bad and he had throat cancer which messed up his voice.

Val is in this trailer for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. He makes a cameo as Bluntman.

I think I just filled the cup.

But seriously I didn't know they were making this. Made my morning.

I'm kind of related to little Jay from Jay and Silent Bob Strikeback. Kevin Smith used to live in my hometown. He slimmed down after he had that heart attack. The last time I saw him his thighs were the size of my waste.

My gosh! WTF happened to Jay's face???

I was thinking the same thing. I'm guessing some plastic surgery. I think he recently got clean, as he was addicted to heroin for a long time.

"Mavrick's still a captain?" King Iceman

Wow, a continuation movie that, after a long hiatus, didn't take creative license to retcon the main character(s) to make it more 'relevant'? I didn't think those existed anymore. Bravo!

Inject it into my veins, all of it.

@hokie_rd

The fan cut trailer was better. The actual trailer ignores the fact that people only liked the original due to the soundtrack. Without a good sound track people will focus on the plot.

Looks like his botox was fresh in that still shot.

"I am probably too rational to be here"

I know it's unrealistic to see it used in actual combat, but the Cobra Maneuver around 0:50 looks awesome.

The F-18 could never actually pull off the Cobra Maneuver at that altitude. It would either rise much higher or stall out...

I've never seen that gif, but I think it belongs in the Christmas thread.

What movies is that from?

I googled it. "Career Opportunities". Nothing to do with Christmas, really, other than the gifs being gifts to mankind.

So at 0:49 that's 100% goose or Viper's kid. I won't be convinced otherwise

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

Miles Teller definitely looks like little goose. IMDb has his name as Bradley Bradshaw. What was goose's real name in the first one?

Edit: And it looks like his call sign is Rooster if I'm reading his helmet right

Goose's name was Nick Bradshaw.

"No, no, there's two 'Os' in Goose."

He's definitely a dead-ringer for his old man, eh?

after seeing this trailer it really just makes me want a days of thunder II more than seeing top gun II.

I'm dropping the hammer Harry is a top quote. Maybe that's just because I always scream it at VT games when we are playing well. I don't know why.

@hokie_rd

P 51 siting!

Edit: I watched a couple of vids on the movie; an extended trailer and a review of the flying by a navy pilot.

From what I see, the only addition to the original plot are the P 51 scenes. Hot chick, pilot dies, competitive sports, motor cycle, etc.

Pilot says that most of the flying would not even be aloud to happen. Much PC work. I still go see it though!

LMAO at the Iran commet!
