Continuity mistake: At the end, a victorious Maverick is hoisted on the shoulders of the guys. As he goes up, he isn't wearing sunglasses. His head goes out of the shot, and when he comes down, he's wearing a pair.
Goose dies after a plane accident and Maverick (Tom Cruise) loses his trophy to Iceman (Val Kilmer). They are sent to the Indian Ocean to protect a carrier. Maverick saves Iceman's life. Maverick later throws Goose's dog tags off the ship. Maverick and Kelly McGillis get together and he decides that he wants to be a Top Gun instructor.
Question: I would like to know from a real Navy pilot if the scene is correct where Maverick's F-14 is right on Iceman's tail and he tells him to fly hard right to get out of his way. This leaves jet wash in his flight path and the jet goes down. Wouldn't a real pilot be trained to avoid this kind of danger from happening with the jet wash?
