Ok, but not great

The novelization of the movie was pretty good, except for when it came to the flight scenes. Unfortunately, in this area the book was seriously lacking, as Cogan had the pilots dogfighting past the sound barrier, pulling right-angle turns, and he kept mislabling and incorrectly titling aircraft. At one point, for three pages, he has Jester flying an A-5. No such creatureexists. He has the pilot call their aircraft F Fourteens or F Fives, thy are F-14s and F-5s. The missiles are also wrong. He calls noe the A 1 M9S Sidewinder. The sidewinder is the AIM-9S. Other than these things that make it obvious Cogan was never a pilot, the book is very good every time they are on the ground.

Definately a Favorite!

I read "Top Gun" after seeing the movie. I found that I enjoied this book, just as much as I enjoyied the movie. It is well written.
