Top Gun Then and Now
Thirty-five years ago, Top Gun brought the thrill and danger of naval jet aviation to the big screen, and its second installment Maverick will make its premiere later this year. Tune in on YouTube on August 10 at 8 pm ET as we explore the impact of both movies, the evolution of the U.S. Navy Fighter Weapons School (aka Top Gun) and naval aviation, and what’s coming next.
Top Gun alumnus (and Museum acting director) Chris Browne will be joined in conversation by Dan Pedersen, co-founder of the U.S. Navy Fighter Weapons School; Dale “Snort” Snodgrass, Top Gun alumnus and high-time F-14 pilot; and Lt. Briana Plohocky, U.S. Navy pilot and recent Top Gun graduate.
This program will be presented live on YouTube with live closed captioning.
