"Top Gun: Then and Now" program held November 30, 2021.

This program is for members of the National Air and Space Society. Join us for a special program featuring a new Smithsonian Channel documentary about the training program that fascinates Hollywood and aviation fans alike. "The Real Top Gun" is the story of real mavericks in the Navy’s Top Gun aerial combat school. Action sequences from Hollywood and actual footage from Navy fighters in combat will help explore the history of the school and the impact of naval aviation on the world. See special scenes from the program and hear from Smithsonian Channel Executive Producer, Dan Wolf, writer/director of The Real Top Gun, and Top Gun graduate and John and Adrienne Mars Director of the National Air and Space Museum Christopher Browne about the making of the program and what Top Gun is really like.


The GE Aviation Lecture Series is made possible by the generous support of GE Aviation.
