Mineral County residents moved to the side for a very low flying aircraft on Monday, when a jet, rumored to be headed to Lake Tahoe for Tom Cruise’s new movie, “Top Gun: Maverick”.
Cruise will bring back his cocky character, Peter “Maverick” Mitchell while Val Kilmer brings back the role of “Goose”.
The plane, rumored to be that of a F-18 Tomcat, which was Maverick’s plane in the original film, made Cruise famous when he gave the iconic quote of, “I feel the need – the need for speed!” Yet, motorists who were stuck behind the Nevada Highway Patrol escorted plane felt anything but.
In the sequel, Cruise will play a captain and flight instructor. “Top Gun: Maverick” is slated to hit theaters across America in June of 2020.
