    Some good in flight film sequences, some was filmed using a Learjet 23 which I believe was flown by Clay Lacy.

    According to wikipedia, Art Scholl was killed flying a Pitts Special while attempting a flat spin recovery.

    The original Top Gun was good in it's day, but not sure whether Top Gun 2 will be as successful, alsp in this day & age what are the chances of modern military aircraft actually getting involved in a dog fight with long range air-to-air missiles & stealth!

    LOL! Nowadays it's probably nerds with laptops guiding drones.

    P.S. I'm 56 and haven't seen Top Gun either... or Grease... or Saturday Night Fever... or E.T....

    It's like me. I used to be a tall, skinny, handsome (yes, handsome. LMAO) tall guy in my twenties, and now I'm a tall fat faced ugly dude. I'll admit it. I'm six feet and weigh a massive 340 pounds. All due to a medication I had to take. Such is life. Perhaps one day I'll turn this fat into muscle which I had wanted to do. But I'm freaking lazy and I'm missing a disk in my back and my endurance right now sucks. Got to focus on diet first then exercise. I used to lift weights many, many years ago.

    Me ~25










    Me now. HAHAHAHA

    Yeah, the aircraft we are developing now are stand off platforms. Like the F-22 or F-35. I mean, I've read the F-22 could shot down a dude who wouldn't even know that F-22 was there from at least 50 miles away and be back home watching Armed Forces TV.

    Haven't seen any of those either and have no desire to. I have seen ET though and I watched the re-release at the theater with a directors cut that included deleted scenes not shown in the original. I just had to see ET in the theater. I was too young at the time to see the original when it came out. ET is a pretty decent film I guess. When my family and I lived in Californiastan, we went to Universal Studios and at the time (not sure now) they had an ET attraction. I loved the forest part for some reason. It was kinda like the Peter Pan ride at Disneyland.

    Universal Studios at the time had a Backdraft movie attraction and that was cool. You're in a mock up Chicago chemical warehouse and all hell breaks lose. HAHA Backdraft is a damn good movie. I think it was directed by Ron Howard. Always wanted to be a firefighter and I was a firefighter explorer many years latter. Was pretty damn cool. I was in a 500 degree smoke house with my SCBA and all that. Even repelled down the 50 odd foot tower a couple of times. Other things happened and the idea of even being a volunteer firefighter was taken off the table. I would read several books on firefighting and all the scientific theory behind using and utilizing a single drop of water. I also read that it's damn hard to be a professional firefighter due to the testing, interview process and competition.
