1. TOP GUN 和MAVERICK是甚麼意思？
壯志凌雲是以美國海軍戰鬥機武器學校為背景的電影 ，英文簡稱為TOPGUN，亦即是片名由來。由湯告魯斯所飾演的主角名叫LT Pete "Maverick" Mitchell 加入了TOPGUN受訓，搭檔在一次意外中喪生令他陷入低潮，後來成功克服，在任務中擊退敵機，終成為新一任TOPGUN教官。

A whole 7 minutes of trailer, showing everything TOP GUN was known and loved for. With modern technologies, every angle in the cockpit is captured and everything will be filmed live instead of CGI – As the interview had mentioned: “…You can’t act that, the distortion in the face…”
3. Tom Cruise 着果件皮褸大有來頭？
在服裝方面，Tom Gun Marverick 同樣見到一件非常有像徵性的皮褸，而這件皮褸是由美國軍褸製造公司Cockpit USA 於美國當地製造， 其款式是參照G-1軍用皮褸而設計，再加上17個獨的布章及USN 授權的徽章。而第二集都沿用相同物料和款式，但仔細一看就會見到章款會有不同之處，你又會喜歡那一件呢？
You will see a very signature leather jacket in both episodes of Top Gun, and do you know the background of it? This leather jacket is made by Cockpit USA which they still manufacture in the US. This Movie Hero design is according to an original military G-1 leather jacket, by adding on 17 different cloth patches and an licensed USN badge. For Top Gun: Maverick, he wears the same G-1 leather jacket, but there are slightly different in details. Which one do you prefer?
