Awesome: Top Gun
  • The climactic dogfight with the Mi Gs. Especially during the part where Maverick overcomes his Heroic BSOD at the beginning of the dogfight when he nearly goes into a flat spin that caused Goose's death halfway in the movie and Maverick dodging a MiG by braking then blowing him away with one last missile.
  • Meta example: During shooting Tony Scott needed a specific shot and was told by commander of the aircraft carrier that it would cost $25,000 to turn the carrier and get it. Scott broke out his personal checkbook. He got the shot.
  • The Fighter Launching Sequence in the opening deserves a mention. The entire intro is basically a love letter to the F-14A Tomcat, with amazing shots of the carrier crew prepping the fighters for launch, and then as the engines light up Danger Zone kicks in.
