Is Top Gun going to glamorize things next year?

Post by mixturerich » Sat Aug 03, 2019 1:54 pm

There hasn’t been a true aviation flick of this magnitude in a long time. Basically...are women going to go flocking to pilots again? I mean, if they can’t have a military fighter pilot, the next best thing is a young sharp regional FO living paycheque to paycheque, right?! :roll:

I think it’s inevitable that the movie will have some effect, but to what degree, I really don’t know. Anyone’s guess? I want this thread to be really stupid.

this movie will surely boost Icon A5 sales, probably crotch rocket motorbikes as well.

Out of curiosity, do you equally think that men will "flock" to female pilots?

I expect viagra sales to go through the roof, when all those 85 year old 3 star generals are going to get young girlfriends because they are so cool in the trailer.

All those poor flight school 172s will be overstressed from students trying to do a four g negative dive.

OK, this is starting well! You can all practice being a wingman until the pattern is full...then it gets dangerous.

Our flight department has already discussed showering together before and after every flight.

If demand matches expectations, we should anticipate a fair number of Cargo planes flying out of Hong Kong loaded with rubber dog shit

Judging from the behaviour I've witnessed at work, they already do.
