A U.S. Naval Aviator Lt. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Cruise) and his co-pilot LTJG Nick “Goose” Bradshaw (Edwards) are promoted to TOPGUN, the Naval Fighter Weapons School at Naval Air Station Miramar despite the reckless behavior that Maverick has continuously shown. At the new school, Maverick is attracted to a female instructor (McGillis) and gains an adversary in another top aviator, Lt. Tom “Iceman” Kazansky (Kilmer), who believes Maverick’s aerial moves are foolish and dangerous. The constant battle between maintaining a top professional and personal life are at the core of this action drama by Tony Scott. This 1986 box-office smash showcased state-of-the-art aerial footage, which was closely monitored by the U.S. Navy and shot through a technique called Astrovision by legendary pilot Clay Lacy and cinematographer Jeffrey L. Kimball. It’s a must see on the big screen.
