Top Gun 2 Production begins

Recommended Posts

Based on the discussion in one of the trailers, I think Maverick is recalled. And, I think he gets recalled because Iceman gets killed. (Kilmer is in the movie, but his real life voice is so toasted after his cancer that he cant hardly have a speaking role. Which makes me think something happened and the next best qual'd pilot is several years retired, hence his being a 30 year Captain)

 

But thats just me.

 

The one thing I find interesting, but means nothing, is that Mav is flying a Top Gun jet, yet has a VX-31 patch on his jacket...

I agree that it might be Iceman's funeral and missing man formation.

Well, any time since Super Hornet were introduced anyway. But, the trailer has a scene where the length of his career is discussed, and presumably they have some answer for this.  Cruise is 57, the oldest actual Navy pilot was 54 as far as I know. It's a stretch , but only by a little and I wonder if that might change in the future- Reince Priebus just joined the Navy at age 46.

Well, I am 57 and I am a Naval Aviator.

I did not know there was an actual life expectancy of 54.

In that case I am living in uncharted territory.🤣🤣🤣

They played a behind the scenes trailer for it before the movie 1917 today at the theater I go to.

Showed some of the flying scenes being filmed which was cool.

Cool! It seems the articles I have read have neglected some of you.  You would then have a better perspective on this than anyone- perhaps the movie isn't so much of a stretch.

Nice touch with the VF(A)-51 Screaming Eagles bag!

It was VF-51that did most of the flying sequences in the original film.

Oh man! I just watched that even without sound on and it got me pumped. Looking forward to it.

 

It would be a pretty cool build to do one of those hornets with all the cameras mounted in the back seat. hmmm.....
