Episode 533: Aerial Dogfights

In just a week or so, the Deucecast Guys enter into the Danger Zone again, at a preview for Top Gun, so that leads the discussion to TOP FIVE DOGFIGHTS in movie history.  Snoop, Snoopy, The Bounty Hunger or Junkyard are not included.  A task too big for just d$, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl, so who do they turn to?  Of course, Hurricane Rhett, because this show has been on the rails way, way too long.

First, memories of the original Top Gun... where did everyone see it?  How young, and how many zippers were on those parachute pants?

Then, the top five movies with aerial battles, mostly featuring planes, but some with helicopters, even some fists, and a stealth fighter named Firefox.

Mikey has the Zoa on tap... Memphis Belle's true mission... the Time Vortex... Ken Olin gets a namedrop... USA Night Flight... the badness of Pearl Harbor... the goodness of Dunkirk... Mikey's weird voices... ID4 mistakes... AirWolf vs Blue Thunder, featuring Riptide... All the Iron Eagles...
