As students at the United States Navy's elite fighter weapons school compete to be best in the class, one daring young pilot learns a few things from a civilian instructor that are not taught in the classroom.
The producers knew the film was big when leather jackets and white t-shirts became "in" again.
Good morning, Scott.
In all shots showing the "Tomcat" radar screen, you see the sweep bar rotating in a 360 degree arc. A Tomcat radar, and all TACAIR (TACtical AIRcraft) radars, progressively scan from side to side, changing elevation in set increments, so the correct radar screen would show a vertical bar moving from side to side. Additionally, the radar apparatus of the F14 is located in the nose of the aircraft, and therefore only scans in a 60 degree arc, not the 360 degree sweep shown, which would pose a radiation hazard to the crew sitting only a few feet behind it.
Following the pictures of actors in the film in the closing credits, a brief shot is shown of two F-14s flying by amidst a red sky with a mountain in the background. The closing credits play over this mountain sunset scenery.
