Is there a mandatory retirement age for USN pilots?

Haven't seen the video above, but isn't there something fishy with Tom pushing his right hand forward at catapult launch instead of his left (gas throttle)?

By the way, were some scene taken in Switzerland? Very alpinesque scenery :)

See here:

Northern California seemingly as NAS Lemoore , the home of the west coast Super Hornet fleet is is up that way. Plus got the Sierra Nevadas to the East ...

cheers

Interesting helmet at the 1:23 mark, full face, and neck seals, so apparently some sort of pressure suit.
Did any US Naval aviators ever do an exchange tour at Beale AFB, where from there they flew U-2s or SR-71s?

Nope there be exchange postings for the intel side fro the base. Anyhow slightly digressing there was the U-2 landing on a carrier as part of CIA / NRO feasibility study (?).

They can't release the movie until the 'secret aircraft' is declassified.....

The release date of the movie 'Top Gun: Maverick' is pushed back again. The newest release date is now May 27th, 2022.o_O:confused:

Oh for Pete's sake. Still waiting for the new Bond flick as well. :confused:

Frack indeed - I assumed it had long been released.

Well it will be released when both JWST and SLS launch... (I can't say Nauka anymore, damn it). :D:D:p:p

Speaking of which, there's an interesting aircraft/sub in the Bond trailers. Best coverage is in trailer 2 at 1:40 and 2:00, though there's a glimpse of the sub-mode at 2:08 in the US final trailer (which is completely different from the International final trailer)

Also, can someone explain the logic in fitting not one but two miniguns to his DB5?

It's purely because it looks cool isn't it. :cool:

Guys, if logic in movies is your thing, you need to watch the latest DHL commercial on the Bond theme :rolleyes:

Obviously not... but reading the various description from CinemaCon... it seems it leaves a lot to be desired...

Here the article about the quite negative (p)review of the first 13 minutes from the upcoming movie TOP GUN: Maverick, which was shown to a small audience at CinemaCon. So maybe this movie needs more editing before the release.
Be aware for any spoilers.

A week after the first thirteen minutes of TOP GUN: Maverick were released, the film has been delayed yet again with a new release date of May 27, 2022. Talking about the possible reasons for the delay plus a breakdown of the first 13 minutes.
