Pete "Maverick" Mitchell may be the best F-14 pilot the Navy has. And Charlotte "Charlie" Blackwood is their top astro-physicist. At Top Gun, the Navy's aerial combat school, Maverick's impulsive feats in the sky seem reckless. And his competitors - the other pilots and the instructors - want to break his confidence. Only an accident in the air can defeat Maverick. And only his fighting spirit - and Charlie's love - can give hm the edge to earn the title... Top Gun.
