One Flying Stunt Top Gun: Maverick Needed Special Permission From The Navy To Film

Based on Joseph Kosinski‘s comments, Top Gun: Maverick actually went looking for extreme aerial sequence ideas to put in the film, and extreme low altitude flying was what they hit upon. Doing such things required military approval, one assumes because the lower you’re flying, the more likely you might come across civilian obstacles. The movie also filmed the actual launch and landing of the jets, which apparently had never been done before, marking a pair of first for Top Gun: Maverick.
