@Ser Scot A Ellison over here sounding like the Drone Ranger.

Drones and cruise missiles can’t pass out due to g-forces… can they?  Look the film was well made… but the mission (besides being the Death Star trench run) was really poorly considered.

If you didn't catch it, Drone Ranger is what Maverick and the guys in the early movie test pilot sequence disparagingly called the admiral that was trying to cut their funding.

I did.  For this mission… he was right.

But then it'd be the most boring movie ever as we watch someone with a joystick play a video game!

(Although, if they did it while wearing a Power Glove, this could have been a stealth sequel to The Wizard!)

Top Gun: Drone Ranger would look like an old LAN Party. Sweaty guys and mountain dew.

Rooster: Mav, your hax00rs!

Mav: So says ur mom, n00b.

Rooster: Bite me. 

Mav: All your base are belong to us. Make your time, mother frakker!

Ha. I just saw the scene where coyote passed out and nearly crashed.

My car slams on the breaks if someone pulls out in front of me too close, but his jet couldn’t level off. 

Many fighters have something called Auto GCAS, which will allow the plane to maneuver out of hitting the ground if the pilot appears unresponsive or confused, but the F/A-18 Super Hornet flown in the movie didn't have it at the time of production. The flight scenes were filmed in 2018, and it was in May 2018 that Congress had a line item in the budget to fund putting it into the Super Hornet fleet.
