Top Gun

Top Gun is an American movie starring Tom Cruise as a cocky, arrogant young United States Navy F-14 Tomcat pilot.

Cruz's character is selected for the Navy's elite "Top Gun" fighter pilot school at Miramar[?], near San Diego, California. He falls in love with a beautiful female civilian instructor there. His back seat crewmate (unlike the Air Force, the Navy puts two pilots and two engines on its fighter aircraft) is killed in a training accident. The death of his close friend causes him to lose his nerve until the climactic air-to-air combat sequence at the end.
