The instructors always fly the older jets, so that only leaves the Classic or Super Hornet.

Maybe he'll fly the "last" operational F-14.

Maybe he will have to FIGHT and KILL the last operational F-14s

Well, Maverick is going to have to have a worthy adversary. So, maybe they will have Russian Su-57's or Chinese J-20's???

Maybe it's the cynic in me, but Tom Cruise learning to fly a FA-18 seems like a glorified version of the good old "It's for the Science Fair" trick.

Has this made the rounds yet?

He was apparently spotted wearing a pressure suit which suggest he'll end up flying at extreme altitudes?
U2? SR-71? SR-72 maybe.

Personally I don't like this. As ludicrous as the original TopGun movie was, it was still boarder line grounded in Reality.
It wasn't like Stealth that wen't full blown science fiction. Topgun Maverick looks like its going to space. :doh:

That would SUCK! Granted it would have the benefit of being based on a realistic scenario. But for me, it's like coming across a car show skipping channels on Basic cable and watching a classic 1960's Chevy Camero get beat at a drag strip by a Honda Civic! It's just disheartening :( And the movie Stealth made Top Gun look like Masterpiece Theater by way of comparison - it's just crap!

Maybe get Lou Gosett from the "Iron Eagle" movie to come and help out to so we can have more realism in the movie! :D

"The US Navy is heavily involved in filming of the new Top Gun: Maverick movie, with various Super Hornets supporting the sequel.

TOP GUN 2 REPORT AND PHOTOS Jamie Hunter 2019 May

FILMING OF THE Top Gun Maverick sequel to the highly successful 1986 movie was in full flow during March. At least three US Navy F/A-18F Super Hornets from VFA-122 ‘Flying Eagles’ are being used for the filming, with actor Tom Cruise once again filling the lead role as CAPT Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell.

While the plot is a closely guarded secret, filming has been taking place at NAS Fallon, Nevada — the current home of the US Naval Fighter Weapons School, TOPGUN — as well as at NAWS China Lake and NAS Lemoore, California. Indeed, a VFA-122 ‘Rhino’ (BuNo 165679/NJ-101) from Lemoore is equipped with three external cameras on its hardpoints as well as behind the cockpit to record airborne sequences. In addition, another VFA-122 F-model (BuNo 165794/NJ-104) features forward-facing cameras in the front cockpit to shoot over the pilot’s shoulders and a rear-facing camera in the back to film the weapons systems officer. In the accompanying shots the pilot can be seen wearing the trademark ‘Maverick’ helmet.

The movie is due to be released in June 2020." COMBAT Aircraft Magazine May 2019 [/quote]
