May 13th, the Top Gun day!

13 May

In 1986 the movie Top Gun came roared into theatres like an F-14 Tomcat. The movie centers on Maverick played by Tom Cruise, a hot shot pilot, who is sent to the US Navy’s Fighter Weapons school.

Why is this day important? Not because of Tom’s looks, but because of the F-14 Tomcat!

Despite being one of the most successful movies of all times, “Top Gun” had it’s share of tragedies. A stunt pilot and his plane crashed into the Pacific during filming and neither the body nor the plane were ever recovered. The film director Tony Scott has later committed suicide by jumping off the bridge.
