Well, that was fun
I've moved Zardnaar's movie stats topic to its own thread so this one can talk about Top Gun.
The Navy has an up or out philosophy. If you don't make rank after a certain period of time you're forced out. But I'm not looking at Top Gun for realism so I'm cool with Maverick still being a Captain after 30 years.There is a reason why Maverick is not a two star admiral... he loves flying his jet too much.
