Chinese Top Gun Side-by-Side
China’s Central Television broadcasted a story about the Chinese military running air force training simulations. Everything seems normal until they cut to a scene from Top Gun of Tom Cruise’s plane shooting down a U.S. fighter jet. You can tell by the screenshots and video that the similarity between the two explosions is uncanny. Whoops. As Iceman, I expect to see some royalties, at least in the form of wish crackers.
