I do wish people would stop referring to pilots (other than USN) as "Top Gun". It straight away colours your perception of what is to follow.


yep-

I also wish Tom Cruise would stop wearing Navy pilot wings and a Topgun patch when he’s off of the movie set.

 

having vented a bit…

And give up the chance to lead the Sea Org’s CAG into battle? Never!

In the event there's anyone who doesn't recognize this guy, he's Clarence E. "Bud" Anderson who celebrated 100 years on January 13, 2022....  The greatest generation.

Had no idea Bud is still with us!  He and Yeager used to fly Mustangs together at Oshkosh.  Quite the pair, they were.
