They have ice in Iowa?

It’s looks like Kilmer is on board for this one. Good to see. Hard to think of Top Gun without Iceman. Good to see him working again after the throat cancer.
My son is 10 and just watched Top Gun for the first time about a month ago.
He is beyond manageable knowing there's a new one coming out.
He's even got himself a flight jacket and some knock-off raybans.
Hedley Lamarr: Wait, wait, wait. I'm unarmed.
Bart: Alright, we'll settle this like men, with our fists.
Hedley Lamarr: Sorry, I just remembered . . . I am armed.
Man that was 32 years ago! What would the flight surgeon say about their keeping their flight status?
“Little else is requisite to carry a state to the highest degree of opulence from the lowest barbarism but peace, easy taxes, and a tolerable administration of justice: all the rest being brought about by the natural course of things.”--Adam Smith, born June 16, 1723
Another movie I can skip. The original was fine for what it was, in the day. A remake? What's next, 'Iron Eagle 5'?
And yea, I too watched the movie for the Tomcat flight sequences. I think the USN charged something like 7K per hour per plane, for the movie. What's that adjusted for inflation for today.
Oh, probably CGI today, which is a shame. Cool to see the CGI in 'Dogfights' on the TV, but for a movie I want the real thing. Otherwise, I can just fire up one of my old flight sims for the same effect.

It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master.

Dude this is the modern version of Space Cowboys.
Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?
Val is gonna have to loose at least 50-60lbs in order to get himself into a flight suit. Maybe chemo has helped with the weight loss
Seeing the original cemented a bucket list wish for me:
To ride the cat!
Of course I will never get to.
I may see the new one, depending on reviews.
And I am waiting for "Ishtar 2".
End of Earth: 2 Miles
Upper Peninsula: 4 Miles

Now you're talking! Another classic!
Of course, Chappy's probably long dead by now.

It's going to be hard to make Fallon, NV look as appealing as San Diego in the remake.

Final countdown was a great flick. Loved the F14 scenes in that movie. I thought the pilot in one scene nearly parked his tomcat in the ocean.
i'm with you on flight of the intruder. I'm not sure why but I always loved the A6 intruder.
And firebirds... well, lets just say Tommy lee jones nailed the part of an army aviator. My father was an army pilot and he was the perfect warrant officer.
He was in 'The Snowman' and scary skinny. Due to the cancer, I'd imagine, his voice is unrecognizable.

Actually they were filming in the "I" Bar and at the Test Line here at NAS North Island (San Diego)last week

Super Hornets. What would Top Gun be without a RIO to bond and banter with?
