I was in the Navy attached to VF-124 the squadron that "Top Gun" was based on and I was a plane captain on the ground crew. The Navy and Marine pilots that were the flight instructors were the best in the world. I am proud to have served with them.
I really didn't appreciate it at the time but now that I'm older it makes my chest stick out with pride.

I was in Miramar too attached to VAW 117. I loved it out there. Allways said I would go back. I have worked for an airline for 14 years and have never made it back.

My wife gets very annoyed with me because I will sit and watch Top Gear for hours on my DVR catching up on past shows. Cool

Mike it's no longer NAS Miramar it's a Marine base now...MCAS Miramar. USNTC San Diego isn't around any more it's cluster homes and condo's. I was in the color guard at NTC and marched in five graduations. There were three of us one carried the US flag the other carried the Navy flag and I carried the California State flag. We were out front of all the companies as they entered the parade field. It was a beautiful sight twelve compaines 30 men to a company all in perfect unison during the show. It seemed like all the brass on the west coast and politicians were in the grand stands. Hats with scrambled eggs as far as you could see. The weather was always perfect. 71 degrees and a constant breeze.

Top Gear on BBCAmerica Monday nights .My opinion the best automotive show on TV. Its a shame American government won't let us have some of the cars they feature.

Yep I had heard they had changed the name. My fondest memory was the Ferrari/Lambo/Rolls dealership right outside one of the main gates. We would go and just drool over the cars until the sales men ran us off.
