The plot of the movie

Top Gun 2 second sequel is just at the corner and most of us can’t comprehend what is the story behind this sequel and why they have decided to revive the next sequel after 36 years? The movie’s leading roles are still Tom Cruise, Jennifer Conelly, and Miles Teller.  In this part it is shown that Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is where he belongs after more than three decades as one of the Navy’s top aviators, pushing the edge as a brave test pilot but avoiding advancement in rank that would ground him. Maverick must confront the monsters of his past and his worst fears while training a detachment of cadets for a special mission, concluding in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who choose to take a flight.

What is so special about Top Gun’s jackets?

Well if you have seen ‘Top Gun’ it’s difficult to say that those jackets didn’t catch your eyes. The Brown G-1 Flight Jacket is worn by Maverick, complete with patches and a fur collar. It’s up there with Marlon Brando’s Schott Leather Jacket in The Wild One and the Matrix Leather Trench Coat as one of the most renowned leather jackets in film history. Tom Cruise’s bomber jacket, which he wore throughout the film, was a classic copy of the jackets worn by the US Navy’s finest fighters. The USN Anchor pin was on the right front pocket of Maverick’s jacket, which carried a total of 17 navy patches. Since 1938, G-1 flight jackets have been standard issues for United States Navy pilots. Maverick’s leather jacket was a replica of what Navy and Marine Corps flight crews would have worn during some of history’s most daring air fights.

What is new in the Top Gun A-2 jacket

This Top Gun Medusa A-2 Jacket is indeed inspired by the Top Gun G-1 Flight Jacket. The feature of this jacket which makes it so unique is its emblem on the back and the front chest.
