Ugh.... it's really weird seeing the Super Hornet and not seeing the Tomcat.


On a side note: Maverick looks really OLD. And they did away with the 80's pilot mustache :shock:

Is that Cruise's P-51 at 1:30?

The guy walks the walk no matter what one thinks of his 'acting'. I really enjoyed 'American Made', this doesn't look bad at all as a follow-up. :D

Maybe it’s just me but the SH just seems a little underwhelming when put up against the Tomcat’s power, and it lacks any futuristic appeal that the F-35 would have. It just comes across as meh. :shrug:

Yes it is. Hearing a Merlin in super surround sound is reason enough to see this in theaters.

The main reason for the SH in TG2 is that there can be a "real pilot" in the back seat so Cruise can be up front. :mrgreen:

Amazing cinematography. I bet most viewers will forget the Tomcat 10 minutes into the movie. The flying scenes and new tech will blow them away.

P.S. any guesses why the full-pressure flight suit?

U-2 or some experimental jet. Or maybe he flies for Richard Branson. If you look at the writing on the plaque where he grabs his sunglasses it says “Test Pilot”.

35_AoA said the film crew was there while f-35's were deployed on one of the carriers so we should get a few glimpses of those, right?

And I'm glad they took the extra time and delayed the release date. It looks like the cinematography could be excellent.

Fact check : Everyone knows Doug Masters downed an entire squadron of enemy fighters.

Former Top Gun instructor Vincent A. over at the Fighter Pilot's Podcast thinks so.e of the low-level and close in formation scenes are either flown by Blue Angels pilots or are CGI.
