A cast member from the movie had been slated to be on this aircraft but the person was unable to make the flight.

Tempted to a 'wow' on this for a great angle. Embraer's longer noses just call for it. In respect of the movie, after 2+ years wait, it appears promotion now will be full tilt.

Fabulous ground shot of the JSX E135 in the Top Gun Maverick livery, Gary! I'm excited to see the film and hopefully the plane.
Agree on the great perspective - really captures the Embraer's clean looks. Can't wait for the film!
Wow, I’m surprised the promotion went as far as getting cast members to take some flights.

Gavin, Dwight, and Don >>> Hey, Thanx, guys. Appreciate the kind words. The weather was turning from sunny to shxxty so I was fortunate to get this before those clouds in the distance came floating over on the west wind.
Masonite >> Not on every JSX flight, but on a fair number of them. And this one (KBUR-KRNO-KBUR) was supposed to be one of the flights, but the cast person was delayed in So Cal (traffic, probably) so the flight finally departed Burbank.

Great photo! Not a fan of Tom Cruise or Top Gun. Just moving billboard….

I see they don’t fly this more than an hour at a time. Save those airframe hours.

Sal .... I'm with you re: TC in TG. (However, I liked him as Jack Reacher in those two movies.) If I were able to tell you how he interacted with the movie crew and Navy personnel while he was at NAS Fallon filming Top Gun Maverick, you'd like him much less. (Let's just say -- Ultra Prima D-nna. I was dismayed. Changed my opinion of him One Eighty Degrees.) Anyway, TY for the compli about this snap.
