Here’s everything you need to know about Top Gun.In 5 minutes.Pete Maverick Mitchell and his radar intercept officer, or Rio, Nick Goose Bradshaw are stationed aboard the USS Enterprise
. While flying with wing man Cougar and his Rio Merlin, Maverick and Goose moved to intercept an unexpected bogey cougar.

Under strict instructions to not fire until fired upon, they managed to hustle the Migs away. Greetings.Cougar, however, is rocked to his core by the skirmish and Maverick defies orders the land first in order to coax Cougar back to the carrier, where cougar turns in his wings. Maverick is acknowledged for his actions but chewed out for disobeying orders.
However, while Mavericks records are being busted include a history of high speed passes over.Five air control towers and one Admirals daughter named Penny Benjamin. Maverick takes Cougars upcoming spot at the Naval Fighter Weapons School.
Top Gun, albeit with a warning. You screw up just this much, you’ll be flying a cargo plane full of rubber dog shirt out of Hong Kong. There’s Sir Maverick and goose. Head to Miramar.
Where their instructor Jester explains the purpose of the training school to the extremely ** fighter pilots in attendance. Excuse me, a heart on it just to also introduces the pilots to the CEO at Top Gun commander Mike Metcalf. Call sign Viper later, while out drinking Goose introduces Maverick to rival pilot Iceman and his Rio slider, and Maverick attempts to woo a woman at the bar.You’ve lost that loving feeling.
Charlotte Blackwood humours Maverick but ultimately rejects his advances, and the next morning it’s revealed Charlotte or Charlie is actually a civilian instructor at Top Gun. Hello.Afterwards, Maverick and Goose defeat gesture in their first training hop, which Maverick celebrates with an unauthorised flyby.
Maverick is later dismissed by ICE as being unsafe. I don’t like you because you’re dangerous. That’s right.Nice man.I am dangerous. Maverick is also reproached by Viper for breaking one of the rules of engagement and buzzing the tower.God dammit, Viper reveals to Jester that he flew with Murphy’s father, Duke Mitchell, whose bad reputation within the Navy hangs over Mavericks head.

I feel the need.Need for speed.Maverick and Goose almost defeat Viper, but are beaten by Jester after they leave their wingman Hollywood and his Rio Wolf man.
That was some of the best flying I’ve seen yet, right up to the part where you got killed. Disaster strikes soon afterwards when Iceman and Maverick are pursuing the same target Mavericks. Tomcat passes through ISIS Jet Wash as he pulls away to give Maverick.The shot? Maverick flames out and goes into an unrecoverable spin.
Maverick and Goose eject.But goose hits the canopy and is killed. Maverick is not considered responsible for the accident, but he’s racked by guilt and he’s flying suffers as Maverick looks to quit the school. Wolfman gives Charlie a heads up, but it’s Viper who gets through to Maverick. He confides with him that he flew with his father. And that Maverick is a lot like he was, Viper reveals to Maverick.
His father, actually.Like the hero, Maverick stays and graduates and congratulates ice and slider on their trophy. Congratulations. Thank you, ice slider.

You can be my wingman anytime.*. You can be mine, Maverick. Let’s go the pass by tossing goose’s dog tags into the ocean, returning to Top Gun as an instructor, and reconnecting with Charlie.
