Could Maverick Really Survive Ejecting At Mach 10? Top Gun Fact Check

Maverick’s escape from the Darkstar’s Mach 10 test flight is one of the most thrilling moments in Top Gun: Maverick, but the Top Gun sequel did warp reality a little to make the moment work. Top Gun and its sequel Top Gun: Maverick are not realistic movies. Despite both portraying a real-life military institution, the Top Gun movies constantly alter reality to fit the needs of the entertaining blockbusters. The real TOPGUN flight school has no pilot rankings, and its classes are not held in empty aircraft hangars but rather in a more conventional setting, classrooms.
