Goofs

During Jay's F-14 dogfight with the F-5 "Saint", the exterior shots are clearly of an F-14 Tomcat, but when footage is shown of Jay's face and torso from inside the cockpit, the unmistakable wings and outwardly canted vertical stabilizers of an F/A-18 Hornet are plainly visible through the canopy behind him. This mistake is repeated again while Jay is attempting his first carrier landing. When the camera is on Jay in the cockpit, it's obvious that he is once again flying in an F/A-18 Hornet, but exterior footage from the carrier shows an F-14 Tomcat landing on the deck. See more »

A beautiful insight into what it takes to become a fighter pilot...
31 August 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I disagree entirely with a previous comment about this being a "Mockumentary" of Top Gun. Sure I can understand how the two can be linked - both were about training to fly F-14's in the US Navy, and both were about fighter pilots, but the similarities stop there.

This DOCUMENTARY is about two REAL people, and their struggle and achievements in fulfilling their dreams to become naval aviators, fighter pilots, they have had their whole lives.

Top Gun was an amazing film, but a fictional film. It had some of the best footage ever seen on film of dogfights and flying jets, and so does this film - and what makes it more special is the footage is real. Real in as far as real people flying real jets in real life situations... Doing it for real.

This film is about realising dreams, the struggle to get to the top, and the highs and painful lows that come with the realisation of those dreams. It's about more than just the flying and the dogfighting, it's about more than just the two "stars" of the film, it's about the Navy as a whole, it's about the families of those involved, and it's about the passion.

I have no ties or links with the film or the film-makers, or even the US Navy. I just sat and watched it and was blown away. If you liked Top Gun, and if you like jets (especially F-14 Tomcats), then this film is for you....
