Re-creating Top Gun

There’s a scene in Top Gun where the jets are inverted and pictures are taken.  Naturally, it was a hit scene and people wanted to re-create it in real life.  Using the help of the Patriots Jet Team, photographer Blair Bunting fulfilled that goal. I think it’s super dangerous, but, let’s be honest, so are most awesome things.  Taking photos in planes upside down is nothing new, taking them only a few feet apart is something completely different though.  That required fast timing, luck, and training.  There’s lots of g-forces at play, and there’s also making sure that everything is within safety margins.

The final photo is pretty nice, but it looks quite fake to be honest though
