TOPGUN - THE REAL STORY



'GOOSE AND MAVERICK MOVE OVER ...' - Admiral James Stavridis





March 1969. American jets are getting shot down at an unprecedented rate over Vietnam. In an urgent effort to regain the advantage the Admirals turn to a young naval aviator called Dan Pedersen.



Officially, the programme he set up was called the US Navy Fighter Weapons School. To everyone else it was known simply as TOPGUN



Pedersen's hand-picked team of instructors - the Original Eight - were the best of the best. Together, they revolutionised aerial warfare and rediscovered the lost art of fighter combat.



This is the extraordinary, thrilling story of how TOPGUN saw America reclaim the skies, by the man who created it.

Dan Pedersen entered the U.S. Navy in 1953. He was the senior officer in the group of nine men who formed the Navy's legendary "Topgun" program at Naval Air Station Miramar in March 1969. He served in combat during the Vietnam War, with a flying cruise on USS Hancock (CVA-19) and three on USS Enterprise (CVN-65). He retired as a captain, having accumulated 6,100 flight hours and 1,005 carrier landings while flying 39 types of aircraft. He lives with his wife outside San Diego.
