Well, when you sponsor a movie i think you should expect a little over the top product placement in return..

I'd like to see a movie version of Warbirds and Force of Eagles.

Perhaps a film about more recent Red Flag events? I can't imagine how good visually that movie would be. (the planes and that flying thing are pretty cool too)

I would purchase that movie in a heartbeat.

In other news, I am kind of disappointed the new Top Gun is centered around the F-35. Personally the F-22 would have been much more appealing.

Actually, more cuts to the computer model of the combat when the chase plane lost track might have been more instructive. As it is, it looked like the F-15s were just waiting for the F-16 to get on there tails before trying to evade.

Top Gun Two (as in the original) is a NAVY movie. No F-22s on the carriers.

Yeah, thanks, just realized that.

Perhaps the antagonist should be an enemy so fierce as to cause the Navy and Air Force to join a joint coalition. Then, with the F-35 as the main role and an F-22 as a not-so-secondary role, would my desires for the perfect film be satiated.

The next Top Gun movie will be about ex-gamers flying X-47s from a Conex in the Nevada desert.

Top Gun was about about pilots in peace time. The "enemy" only showed up briefly in the beginning and end to give the intervening drama more punch.
