If you lock down on a Chinese fighter craft in a Hollywood movie Does its HUD remind the pilot to kneel down to the future overlord?

Enemy aircraft in this case I believe was an F-5. Not likely flown by anyone we’d come up against.

Can we say? Breaking the habitats of Hollywood. Wrong !! The majority Population determines the quality of entertainment Hollywood takes orders. Why do everyday people just accept what's infront of them? Don't answer just think about it and how it relates to everyone and world today.

Side note: the human body can tolerate up to negative 3 G's, unprotected. With a G-suit one can increase your tolerance by a lot. Fewer for negative G than positive G. Long story short, if done for a very limited time (20 seconds at most) one CAN pull off a negative 4 G dive. Longer with a suit......*sips coffee*

The tail of the Tomcat wont reach the Mig seeing as their cockpits are aligned and the Tomcat is significantly longer than the Mig. Basic human logic will do the rest for you....

Jesus Christ the military is so scared of negative g. It’s common knowledge that the xtra300 community routinely pulls +12.0 and -6.0g. It’s perfectly fine. It’s just the military is terrified of it.

Great stuff. There's an edited Top Gun trailer on Youtube that makes it out to be a love story between Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer. As former USAF, I found it hilarious (and maybe a nugget of truth given that it's the Navy :-) Just some good natured interservice rivalry.

Whenever I watch these videos, I always wonder how much the directors cared for some of these movies. If you're a director making a movie about a specific profession, I feel it's important to do proper research about what you're going into. Try to get professionals in the field to answer your questions, look up videos of people doing the actual job, ect. I understand that their job is a director and not said professional that has gone under schooling for that job, so some discrepancies are going to be there and are fine to have there. Rather, seeing a director blatantly disregard what the job entails just to have some Hollywood blockbuster hit filled with explosions and constant excitement, I'd rather see as close to what it was actually like on that day (when it comes to movies representing a historical moment). I also understand it's not always possible for directors to do entirely what that want due to outside sources restraining them. This is more just what I wish more directors could push to be.

Hey Mr. Whiz can u break down Doug Masters in Iron Eagle. Also if Maverick faced Doug Masters if they flew the proper fighter jets like Doug flew an F-14 to face Maverick and Maverick flew an F-16 to face Doug Masters to keep it even and can u Break down if Blue Thunder faced Airwolf. I look forward to what could happen.

I flew competition aerobatics at the Unlimited level for many years. He is absolutely incorrect that "your head would explode" under negative 4Gs. I routinely pulled negative 6 to 8 Gs and I can assure you that my head is still attached. But, being a military pilot, having only flown military aircraft, he would never have experienced negative 4 Gs. Most military aircraft, including fighters, have a max negative G rating of 2.5-3 Gs. This is the point at which aircraft damage can occur. The aircraft I flew was an Edge 360 which was rated for +/- 20 Gs before failure. And I routinely pulled 8-10 positive Gs and 6-8 negative Gs.

re: names, I saw a Modern Marvels episode on the F14 Tomcat and there was a former pilot talking about it and they showed his name and it was ?? (say Joe, forgot his first name) "Taco" Bell. His nickname was Taco because his last name was Bell. That fits w/ what bro is saying here. Yes, really, find the epi on YT and peep it.

Hey Whiz, loved your initial commentary of Top Gun about the ready room teasing. I was enlisted as an F-18 mechanic and flight deck troubleshooter when this came out, and I can assure you the guys down in the shops were equally amused at the BS that runs rampant in the film. Good entertainment though, and it did inspire kids to join up. Also, regarding your call sign, I'm sure there's a funny story about it that you may not want to share. We had a junior pilot who just could not catch a wire. He wore down so many hook points they named him "Sparky". Who knows, maybe you flew with him. Thanks for your service shipmate!

2:36 ... Believe it or not, this was just the TIP of the iceberg in the unbelievable life of George Welch. He starts here, one of only a few Americans who managed to get into the air on Dec 7th and successfully score kills on Japanese aircraft AFTER being wounded. He then goes on to become a triple Ace in the Pacific campaign. After the war he was one of, if not THE primary test pilot for America's first frontline jet fighter, the F-86... and evidence exists that he was the first person to break the sound barrier on two separate occasions, one of them being 20 minutes before Chuck Yeager's record flight. Later in Korea he's supposed to be teaching his students in the F-86 but winds up scoring as many as 6 kills on MiGs, which are then distributed to his students because he disobeyed orders not to engage. After Korea he lost his life testing the Super Sabre and was buried in Arlington National Cemetery. The man is one of the greatest pilots of all-time and many don't even know his name...

30 And Hating It great history! I agree.... that is why most historians mention Yeagers flight was the first breaking of the sound barrier in level flight. Almost a wink toward Welch who did it in a shallow dive....
