The sequel to the 1986 blockbuster “Top Gun” is being filmed aboard the Norfolk-based USS Abraham Lincoln this week, according to the Navy. The original film inspired a generation of fighter pilots and served as a recruiting bonanza for the Navy.

The much-anticipated sequel began shooting May 31, according to a photo on Tom Cruise’s Instagram account. The photo featured him in a flight suit near a fighter jet with the same helmet he wore in the original film and referenced an oft-quoted line from the original movie: “I feel the need, the need for speed.”


It's pretty exciting to finally see one of the iconic films that I grew up with and helped inspire my enthusiasm for aviation (along with a father working at a prominent aviation company).

Thanks for this. I’ve never actually seen the original movie yet, apart from the opening sequence. Grew up with the song though, and so iconic of the 1980s! :thumbsup: I also like the short interview here with Kenny Loggins. Harold Faltermeyer’s work was legend too in this era. Will definitely see the movie before the sequel comes out next year, which would be good to see on the big screen. :profile:
