Now in works for our September issue is Combat Aircraft’s free TOPGUN supplement.

Editor Jamie Hunter was given rare and unlimited access to TOPGUN at NAS Fallon, Nevada, for this supplement, which includes a look at how it all started, the F-14 Tomcats of TOPGUN, the special paint schemes of the aircraft, and details of how the school operates today.

‘I came here for my first tour as a TOPGUN instructor 14 years ago because TOPGUN instructors are the best in the business and I wanted to reach that level,’ says current TOPGUN CO CDR Christopher ‘Pops’ Papaioanu. ‘They were, and still are today, the aircrew you would just be in awe of over their level of professionalism and talent in the jet.’
