  • Top Gun Maverick

    Seems the sequel to Top Gun will finally be released in 2020. In a slight go the F35 programme Maverick will fly an F18.

    Wouldn't Maverick be a little too old to be a fighter jockey by then? I wonder how well did Charlie aged.

      Make Maverick a Reserve Captain and it may be possible. In between flying 747's for Panam, he can command a Wing in the Naval Reserve. Of course I would not let him fly a fast mover...

        Pan Am? Where have you've been? Perhaps drinking too much chrysanthemum tea judging by your House of Yamato family crest avatar?

          If it floats your boat, feel free to use Delta or United. I am in a game about to start up where I command one of two Japanese Fleets.

            Not too old, if you remember the age of Jester in the original film, and Cruise would be flying as OPFOR as an instructor. Jester flew an F-5 while Cruise was flying a Tomcat.

              Jester flew an a4. The plane they used for the ‘Mig 28’ was the F5.

                I'll have to view it again, but you're probably right. However, in terms of the thread, Hollywoody doesn't care if the ages and aircraft don't match up. They're selling Cruise, not history or accuracy. Take a look at the Jack Reacher farce. Cruise as a 6'5" 250 lb man? LOL.

                Besides, the original Top Gun had more holes in it than the New York sewer system.

                  Not so bad Kelly McGillis is still considered a babe in most nursing homes, but she came out as a lesbian a few years ago so "Charlie" sounds just about right!

                    She hasn't aged well....

                          She is about the right height for Tom Cruise. All the women in Tom Cruise movies had to slouch and he had to stand on a step stool.

                            If Maisie can make Tom look like a macho man she has my vote for an oscar.

                              One of the characters is supposed to be Goose's son. The F18 is a single seater so presumably he would have to be a pilot?
