Watch as a real life fighter pilot reacts to Top Gun! We got Ex-US Navy Fighter Pilot and Aviator Instructor, Alex Bowman, to look at these iconic Top Gun flight scenes and break down these Top Gun clips, as he shares his expert Top Gun pilot reaction.

Just how realistic are the Top Gun combat scenes and Top Gun fights? Join us as we see a fighter pilot watches Top Gun and explains how realistic in the 1980s movie really is. From buzzing the tower to Maverick's and Goose's constant radio air chatter, to avoiding missiles while flying the Grumman F-14 Tomcat, Alex tells us if these movie scenes would fly in real life Top Gun. I feel the need—the need for speed!
