In 1986, “Top Gun” premiered in the United States and became the highest-grossing film of the year. It earned a total of $356.8 million in the box office. This includes a re-release in IMAX last 2013. The film won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for its “Take My Breath Away.”

Viewers were not only the ones who saw value for Top Gun. In 2015, the United States Library of Congress added the film to the National Film Registry. Top Gun was described as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant, which is why it was chosen. After three decades, the movie producers have created a sequel titled “Top Gun: Maverick” to be released in 2020.

Since the release of the “Top Gun: Maverick” trailer, many are anticipating more cool fighter jets, adrenaline-pumping action, and visually-stunning plane stunts. Fans are already excited to see what modern jets will make the cut.

In the first “Top Gun” movie, United States Naval Aviator LT Pete "Maverick" Mitchell flies the Grumman F-14 Tomcat. After three decades, we see Maverick flying the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet in the 2020 movie trailer.

The F-14A is an American supersonic, twin-engine, two-seat, twin-tail, variable-sweep wing fighter aircraft. It is equipped with two Pratt & Whitney TF30 (or JTF10A) augmented turbofan engines and flies at 2,485 km/h.

Meanwhile, the “Top Gun: Maverick” trailer shows the F/A-18, a twin-engine, supersonic, all-weather, carrier-capable, multirole combat jet, designed as both a fighter and attack aircraft. It famously used by the US and several other nations, including becoming part of the U.S. Navy's Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels in 1986. Its top speed is recorded at 1,915 km/h.

Between the two planes, the F-14 is faster, but the F/A-18 is tougher. In terms of speed, the difference is huge. No wonder Maverick Mitchell’s famous dialogue is "I feel the need -- the need for speed."
