But I thought you guys love Firebirds? ;)


Just as much as Navy pilots love TOP GUN.

Not quite. (Can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not) Nobody takes that movie seriously and laughs about it just as much you would any cheesy 80s movie. Getting awarded any call sign from that movie is generally a bad thing and probably means you're a douche rocket.

Given the context, I'd say sarcasm.


"If it's leakin' don't worry it's still full. If it ain't leakin', buckle up."

"What could possibly go wrong?"

Yes I was saying that like naval aviators and top gun, most of us hate and laugh at firebirds too.

I feel like that could be a Shindig thread, "Do most Army Aviators like Firebirds?"

That is true, doubt it would make it 100+ pages though. Would be a difficult topic to troll.

Hold a pencil in front of your right eye, and then throw yourself face first on to the floor.

So I'm a little behind the curve here but what's the deal with Firebirds? Is it one of those ridiculously over the top gung-ho high-speed low-drag high and tight military movies that's laughably annoying?...and should it be watched at least once?

Well you have a choice, Firebirds the movie or Firebirds the book. A vastly different perspective between the two.

 

On the plus side, at least they had a 58 in the movie.

 

I have to agree, the movie was severely lacking, but then again it was 1990.

Being part of the Coppola family and winning an Oscar for Best Actor, get's you a lot of passes in Hollywood, only excuse I can think of.
