I can't recall now The Cock I'll have to check it out. Stop everything and see it immediately. Just on screen. Or maybe he was just run off set when Nicholson stole every scene. The character made a few guest appearances. Doesn't seem like a very run-y movie. Even a creepy looking face shot while he's running. Scratch that.

There is no Top Gun Trophy in real life. Life isn't the same with this knowledge, I know. When Maverick is going into a flat spin, you hear a voice while the camera pans over to look at the rear of his F This would have actually been Engine 2, because Engine 1 is the left engine.

Scott filmed them both, then decided to reuse those same shots throughout the movie. The writers said it was a tough decision to kill off Goose, but they needed to an emotional element to the movie.
