Okay, the flat spin would happen. F-14 Tomcats flew with the threat of getting into a flat spin, and the plane would have no way to break out of it. THAT'S accurate. That said, THERE IS NO WAY THE BLOWN CANOPY WOULD BE ANYWHERE NEAR THE PLANE BY THE TIME THE PILOT AND THE R.I.O. EJECTED. NO CRASHY-INTO-CANOPY. WOULDN'T HAPPEN. ARGH.

There. I needed to vent.

Top Gun's still an entertaining movie, but I need my entertainment NOT TO MOCK THE REAL WORLD. Argh. (That was a smaller argh.)

Signed,
Someone who's still mad that Warren Skaaren, the last writer on Top Gun, was the one who said Well Goose is gonna die, let's give him a wife and kid to really twist the knife!

Dude, I was 12 1/2 when that film came out and I wanted to pair up with McGillis, thus going beyond "ahead of its time" and rocketing over to "waaaaaaaaaaay out of your league, dude."

Two hours of Top Gun, and that's the part you nitpick?
