eh..if I knew the answers to all these questions, I'd cut down on the aviation related films.

I think nr 10 is a F-14 Tomcat. ( He might have flown the A-4 though, not sure.)

I think I am going to keep this post up over the weekend to see if we get some more hits

As far as answers go.....

I am not going to say who is in the lead with the most correct answers but.......

We have had so far 4 questions answered correctly and three that I consider near misses....One of those I am going to double check before I post the answers.

But I will pass this information on to FlyBoeing....Heston was killed in the movie Midway

To those of you who haven't answered yet....Please take a guess and see how you do.

10. From the Movie Top Gun

Viper flew what type Aircraft

Viper (played by Tom Skerritt) flew the A-4
I suppose that techincally we could say that he was also qualified in the F-14 because he offered to be Mavericks back seater after Goose was killed. But he never flew it in the film

For those of you who took guesses I hope you had fun and thanks for participating.

I don't know one of these movies, except Top Gun, which I've heard of, but I don't know it.
About Top Gun I thought they're flying Tomcats, but now I see USAFHummer saying A-4. I don't know, as said above I didn't see this movie.
