Man, I thought the bullshit-cough was so cool when I saw that movie. I was using it for months!
I miss the '80s.
And no, I’m not a “know-it-all” – I just look things up and read about them before I take somebody on. You’ll note that there are topics I won’t touch, 'cause I have no clue about them.
Sorry guys but I have to jump in too:
You were in a 4G inverted dive with
a MiG 21? (She can’t believe it.)
At what range ?
Chuckles, barely suppressed. Goose pipes up to deflect
One and a half, actually. I got a

MiG-28, not MiG-21. MiG-28 isn’t a real plane (all the MiGs have odd numbers). Which is probably why they used it in the movie. The MiG-28s were really F-5s, I think.
Good news / bad news (from cbc.ca):
“A BC Supreme Court justice has decided against fining the BC Teachers’ Federation for its ongoing illegal strike action, but she is cutting off BCTF strike pay to teachers.”
I was looking for Top Gun scripts to get that segment and all the ones I found say Mig 21. Maybe the written script had 21 but last minute legal stuff made them change it to 28. Now I can’t find my DVD copy ( given to me by the russian) to check the actual dialogue but I found another site (http://www.moviemistakes.com/film1312/page3) which uses Mig 28 when describing the scene.
Read down where it talks about the planes.
Also, you’ve inspired me to fish out the DVD… I’m such a geek:
Dude, that was awesome.
Yup! That was so much better than the script. There was a lot of differences between what I copied and pasted and the actual movie. Good changes too.
