Do you love the movie “Top Gun” starring Tom Cruise? If you’re a freedom loving American you most likely answered that question with a resounding “YES!” The film is filled to the brim with amazing scenes that make it hard to feel anything but patriotic.

One of the best scenes from the film is the iconic tower flyby scene where Goose and Maverick buzz the tower. If you’ve ever wondered how they shot this scene before CGI was popular this video should answer all you questions.

As an added bonus Tom Cruise tells the story of riding in the cockpit with a pilot named “bozo” and having his head pushed to the floor while simultaneously barfing his brains out from all the G-force.
