This is one of my favorite fighter aircraft. I used to live in San Diego near Miramar NAS where the real Top Gun is located, and used to watch this aircraft all the time. The instructors flew the SkyHawk and you could tell who won that days dog fight by how they returned to base. Who ever won did a high speed flyby before landing and who ever lost did a routine approach. The SkyHawks almost always did the flyby.
