It looks like the F-14 Tomcat will be making an appearance in "Top Gun 2."
Although actor Tom Cruise announced the first day of filming back in May with an Instagram post of himself in front of an F/A-18 Hornet, he may end up back behind the stick of the Tomcat he flew in the 1986 original.
The website Hollywood Pipeline has published a bunch of photos of Cruise and Miles Teller — who will play Goose's son Bradley — on set up in South Lake Tahoe, California. Most interesting to me is the photo of a hangar with an F-14 inside, a full-size M1 Abrams tank, and the pair of actors walking around in flight suits, because the mustachio'd Teller looks very much like a younger version of Maverick's radar intercept officer, Nick Bradshaw.
The local news website South Tahoe Now reported on Tuesday that California Highway Patrol had escorted a wide-load truck carrying the F-14 up to the site.
How it will actually be used in the film is anyone's guess, but you can check out the new images below:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Erik Prince, the controversial private security executive and prominent supporter of U.S. President Donald Trump, made a secret visit to Venezuela last month and met Vice President Delcy Rodriguez, one of socialist leader Nicolas Maduro's closest and most outspoken allies, according to five sources familiar with the matter.

(Reuters Health) - While army suicides have historically decreased during wartime, that trend appears to have reversed in recent decades, a new study of U.S. records finds.
Researchers poring over nearly 200 years of data found that unlike earlier times when there was a decline in suicide rates among U.S. Army soldiers during and just after wars, the rate has risen significantly since 2004, according to the report in JAMA Network Open.
