I actually stumbled upon it on YouTube a couple of years ago, but it's been taken down since. It's worth $10 or $15 for the blu-ray on amazon, definitely worth it, though you can probably find it elsewhere online.

this is from the documentary 'Speed and Angels' :
"Young Navy Officers, Jay and Meagan, have dreamt of becoming naval aviators flying the F-14 Tomcat since their childhoods. The film follows their two-and-a-half year journey as it takes them through dogfights in the Nevada desert, night landings on aircraft carriers in the Atlantic, and eventually to the biggest challenge young officers face: wartime deployments to Iraq."

I guarantee you this is raw top gun footage. As a kid (to this day) I know the movie line for line, scene for scene. The painted F-5 (as seen taxiing on the tarmac) is supposed to be enemy "Mig-28's" which don't exists. The makers of top gun used the F-5 for this fictitious aircraft. There are a couple scenes that are unedited (can tell by lighting) that are directly from the movie. However, since the Mig's in the story were fought at sea, a lot of this footage could not be used. It would appear that some of the choreographer maneuvers were repeated with the A-4's as battles with the instructors of Top Gun. i say this because some of the background and maneuvers seen in this clip are in the actual movie, only with the A-4 rather than the "Mig"/F-5

The 26th MEU operates continuously across the globe, providing the president and unified combatant commanders with a forward-deployed, sea-based quick reaction force. The MEU is a Marine Air-Ground Task Force capable of conducting amphibious operations, crisis response and limited contingency operations.

Here is a video montage of the Naval Aircraft Carrier, USS Kittyhawk flight Operations (CV-63). These US Naval Vessels carry up to at a time, 4,500+ people and 75+ aircraft including Special Forces. These naval vessels are the worlds most powerful of its kind. The combined firepower of man, woman, technology and aircraft is astonishing. These vessels can be on station in the world within a few days to deliver their awesome fire power to any given enemy that wants to play around with the big dogs. Enjoy the video Note if you look at the night time launches you will see the carrier is in rough sea It dont stop these guys they launch on the upswing Also the crew of the ship get a little show from one of the pilots

The Phalanx CIWS advanced radar-controlled gun system provides superior defense against close-in air and surface threats. The Phalanx Close-In Weapon System is a rapid-fire, computer-controlled, radar-guided gun system designed to defeat anti-ship missiles and other close-in air and surface threats. A self-contained package, Phalanx automatically carries out functions usually performed by multiple systems -- including search, detection, threat evaluation, tracking, engagement, and kill assessment. Phalanx Block 1B, the latest upgrade, with its surface mode configuration, augments the proven anti-air warfare capability by adding a forward looking infrared sensor and optimized gun barrels to the Block 1A configuration. It allows Phalanx to be used against littoral warfare threats such as helicopters and high-speed surface threats. Block 1B also adds new control stations with situational awareness that allows operators to visually track and identify targets before engagement. Phalanx is installed on practically all U.S. combatant ships and on those of 22 allied nations. The SeaRAM Anti-Ship Missile Defense System provides the highest level of ship self-defense with extended keep-out range capability. The SeaRAM Anti-Ship Missile Defense System is a spiral development of key attributes of the Phalanx Close-In Weapon System and the Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM) Guided Weapon System. SeaRAM is designed to extend the inner layer battlespace and enable the ship to effectively engage multiple high-performance, supersonic and subsonic threats. An 11-missile RAM launcher assembly replaces Phalanx's 20mm gun. SeaRAM combines RAM's superior accuracy, extended range and high maneuverability with the Phalanx Block 1B's high resolution search-and-track sensor systems and reliable quick-response capability. SeaRAM is an affordable capability upgrade ---- the above-deck system fits the exact footprint of the Phalanx, uses the same power, and requires minimal shipboard modification.
