Speculation only, but potential spoilers.
I look forward to taking my parents to this. This was on all the time at my house growing up...
Even my MOM liked Top Gun...
Is it realistic? I dunno... last night I watched Tony Stark hanging off the bottom of a jet, so I'm long past caring.
I just wanna watch and hear jets on Imax.
My mom is hoping she'll live long enough to see Tom Cruise's obituary. She hates him.
In this video he says Maverick is flying an SR-72...but isn’t that project effectively a drone? I had read that the successor to the Blackbird was going to be a UAV.
I haven't seen anything about a proposed SR-71 replacement in ages but if there is still a program for it, depending on when the project was launched, it'll probably be a drone of some sort. It would make sense for an "SR-72" to basically be a high performance equivalent to the Global Hawk.I've read everything from it being a drone to it being "optionally manned". I don't know if they even have a prototype or if it's still a concept. I'm also not sure if that would even be a Navy project. It would more likely be tested and flown by USAF personnel like the SR-71. Of course the U.S. military (probably more likely the politicians?) seems to like to do joint projects to keep the costs down when they can, so who knows?
