Maverick is back for the Superbowl

Yesterday saw the brand new trailer for Maverick‘s return. After more than 30 years of service he is back doing what he loves. Teaching new recruits how to be a Top Gun.

It doesn’t tell us much more than what we have seen but there are some interesting scenes it in.  What has he been flying in his career and who is the funeral for? Two of the major questions that are thrown up in the amazing TV spot.

After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. When he finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw, call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose”.

Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.
