In 1987 I started work as a training video producer for TOPGUN, the Navy Fighter Weapons School.
The interviewed pilot, callsign "Hose" became our XO. Though he seems arrogant, he could back it up with his flying. Some of the instructors were quiet and humble, but it took a while to get used to the several egos there!
In 1991 we had a visit from the "Inside Edition" crew. "Hose" insisted the reporter fly with him. He told us why: He planned to make the reporter as sick as possible with lots of negative G maneuvers, then make him pass out with some high positive G (you can see this in their video).
Why did Hose do this? Just to show how tough pilots are - to emphasize that the reporter was just an earthbound geek.
Mr. Goldfarb, the reporter, was such a nice guy. I felt sorry for him. In spite of his rough treatment, Goldfarb did a thorough, factual and positive story.
So... who was the real pro? I'll let you judge.
PS In the 4 years I worked there, I heard the theme from the movie "Top Gun" so often, I still can't stand it. Feh!
