“Do you want Mach 10? Give it Mach 10.”

Delivered by Maverick (Tom Cruise) in the long-awaited and already very popular “Top Gun” sequel, the line helps prepare the audience for the fact that things have been a little more updated in the sky. Maybe 1986 original.

In this early sequence, Maverick arrived and discovered that the hypersonic flight test he was planning to perform was canceled by Admiral (Ed Harris), who prefers to spend on drones.

However, “cancel” is not part of Maverick’s vocabulary and we will continue to test as planned with the aim of reaching Mach 10 speed.

Director Joseph Kosinski, who discussed the scene, said he and his crew worked with Skunk Works, a division of Lockheed Martin, to design a sophisticated aircraft.

He said it was based on an aircraft that “may or may not exist.” The shot in the hangar is “a full-scale mockup made with their cooperation”.

Kocinski said the scene was “intended to turn around and lead’Top Gun’to the future.” Here you can see Maverick at the forefront of aviation. “

Pay close attention to the final shot of the scene where Maverick takes off. It had to be done by one of the few Navy pilots allowed to fly so-called low altitude transition operations. The pressure waves created by the maneuver destroyed part of the set. In other words, the crew could only make one shot.
