"Right after an air-to-air combat training flight we would go down to the debrief area and replay the flight visually in computer simulated 3D. 'What were you thinking about here?' 'What would you do next time in this and that scenario?' The movie was filmed in the actual debrief room [with Maverick's romantic interest and civilian instructor 'Charlie' Blackwood]." • Speaking of romance, what does Dr. Schallhorn have to say about one of the most famous scenes in the movie, where Maverick sings "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" to Charlie at an officers' club? Well, he said, there was a Miramar Officers' Club.

"I haven't been over there in many years. I did meet my wife at an officers' club. I was with a fellow aviator during flight training. I'm not sure what song was playing, but I didn't grab a mic and sing to her." Close enough, Dr. Schallhorn. Despite the similarities between Dr. Schallhorn's experience and what unfolded in the movie, he maintains that characters were based on composites of pilots. He wasn't Maverick, nor was he "Viper," the chief instructor. Dr. Schallhorn's aviator call sign was actually "Legs." Why? "That's something I only share over a beer at the Miramar Officers' Club," which has since become a Marine Corps Officers' Club. Dr. Schallhorn being a Navy guy, I guess we'll never know.
