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.

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.
