...the "The Final Countdown" from 1980. Light years ahead of "Top Gun" this flick really made me a sucker for airrcraft carriers, F-14 Tomcats and "no-bullshit" Navy aviators.
James Farentino plays Wing Commander Owens, a real cool and cocky Navy aviator wearing a 1680 (?) throughout the movie. It is most prominent in scenes on the command deck when he plays against Kirk Douglas (as the carrier captain).
Other notable actors include Martin Sheen and Charles Durning (playing a real sweet senator).
OK, by true modern standards it is a bit outdated but considering its age I think it is still a great movie. Remember it is over 30 years old!
