The Real Top Guns

The Real Top Guns

Top Gun is arguably the most familiar military training establishment in the world. Boosted by a blockbuster movie over 30 years ago, the legends and public adulation that surround Top Gun belie the 1960s-era failures that spawned it.


This documentary goes beneath the Hollywood glitz to uncover the true story of how Top Gun came to be, and how it has survived to the present day.


Watch never-before-seen footage of flight and combat training in some of the fastest fighter jets on earth as we meet the real Top Guns.
