    The Top Gun hype machine may have taken a highway to the danger zone - as it has emerged that star Tom Cruise did not actually pilot the $70 million F-18 Super Hornet which he is seen 'flying' in the film. Cruise, 59, famously insists that he does his own stunts and has been banging the drum for the authenticity of Top Gun: Maverick. The film, released on May 27th, shows his character Maverick flying supersonic jets on a dangerous secret mission – at 'Mach 2 with his hair on fire,' as Cruise puts it. No fly zone: The Top Gun hype machine may have taken a highway to the danger zone - as it has emerged that star Tom Cruise did not actually pilot the $70 million F-18 Super Hornet which he is seen 'flying' in the film Cruise and others have spoken in numerous interviews about how they went through months of training to be able to handle G-Forces and say their lines in the film without passing out or vomiting.

    Maverick ( PG, 135 mins) Rating: Verdict:  Supersonic! We all know that Tom Cruise does his own stunts, but this is something else. There he is in an F-18 fighter jet, his billion-dollar face contorted by G-forces, as the whole thing roars off an aircraft carrier in the middle of the ocean. The only small nod to sanity is that Cruise isn’t flying the jet himself: The US Navy wouldn’t let him. Otherwise, everything else is real: The plane, the warship, the stomach-turning gravitational pulls. He’s actually up there in the sky going at 1,189mph as the camera rolls. Cruise experiencing G-force in  F-18 fighter jet in Top Gun: Maverick In Top Gun: Maverick, the new sequel to the 1986 original, this kind of macho film-making isn’t just showing off. It’s the point. Nowadays, they could get computers to do all the work, but Cruise refuses to stand aside. So they just strap him in and watch him go. In this respect, Cruise has much in common with his character, fighter pilot Pete Mitchell, who doesn’t appear to have...

    Michael Chandler brings violence to the Octagon every time he fights. Michael Chandler is on a quest to win the UFC lightweight championship or put on the best fight possible against the toughest names available. He takes another step toward both those goals at UFC 274 when he faces off against Tony Ferguson. “This is what I asked for,” Chandler said during the UFC 274 media day. “I always dreamt of coming here and putting on performance under the brightest lights and that’s what they gave me. It’s right where I wanted to be.” Since joining those bright lights in 2021, Chandler has put on some of the most exciting fights in mixed martial arts. He’s 1-2 in the Octagon, with a win over Dan Hooker and loses to Justin Gaethje and Charles Oliveira. Even though he’s riding the wave of those two losses into his fight against Ferguson, Chandler is determined to stay the course and push forward. “I gave up trying to be perfect long ago,” Chandler said. “You go through a couple of losses and you realize...
    Getty UFC welterweight Khamzat Chimaev. Welterweight Khamzat Chimaev is no longer a rising contender after earning a massive victory over Gilbert Burns at UFC 273 on April 9. “Borz” entered the Octagon in Jacksonville, Florida, as the No. 11-ranked fighter in the 170-pound division, as per the official UFC website, and he faced off against Burns, who held the No. 2 spot. The two welterweights collided for three, hard-fought rounds. It was a tit-for-tat war, with each fighter hurting the other several times on the feet. But in the end, Borz earned the judges’ decision via unanimous decision. Chimaev extended his undefeated professional mixed martial arts record to 11-0, and “Durinho’s” record fell to 20-5. With the win, Chimaev will surely take over Burns’ top-two spot, or at the very least, break into the top five of the talent-stacked weight class. With UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman recovering from hand surgery, as well as UFC president Dana White confirming that No. 3 Leon Edwards will receive the next crack at “The Nigerian Nightmare,” Borz will likely fight one...
    Getty Conor McGregor walks in the Octagon before his lightweight bout against Dustin Poirier during UFC 264 in July 2021. Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor is one of the three greatest fighters ever in the eyes of current featherweight king Alexander Volkanovski.

Volkanovski, who’s set to defend the 145-pound title against Chan Sung Jung this weekend at UFC 273, was recently interviewed by Man of Many.

    "This is what I call a target-rich environment." Paramount Pictures released the new trailer for Top Gun: Maverick Tuesday hinting at a return of Val Kilmer's Iceman and a possible twist that could leave audiences shocked.

    Getty Conor McGregor walks into the Octagon for his trilogy match with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July 2021. Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor wants to earn another weight-class belt by beating Kamaru Usman, but Vicente Luque thinks the 170-pound king would likely “dominate” “Notorious. In a recent interview with MMA reporter John Hyon Ko, Luque gave his thoughts on McGregor vs. Usman. And unsurprisingly, he thinks the No. 1-ranked pound-for-pound fighter would take out the Irishman. “McGregor, all that I would see on him right now is that he has great timing,” Luque said via MMA Mania. “So he’s able to time guys really well. He could hit Kamaru with something clean and maybe get a win. But other than that, I think Kamaru goes in there and dominates him and possibly, probably finishes him. Especially because McGregor doesn’t do well in five-rounders.

    The top U.S. general in the Middle East on Tuesday said that Iran remained the greatest threat to the region and that it had 3,000 ballistic missiles, some of which could reach as far as Israel's Mediterranean city of Tel Aviv.  Appearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Gen Kenneth McKenzie laid out the biggest challenges in the region and said only a handful of fighters appeared to have taken up Russia's call for Syrians to fight in Ukraine.   But he said Iran represented the biggest day-to-day danger to regional security and would become much more dangerous if it were able to acquire nuclear arms.   'My concern is, first of all, that they not have that nuclear weapon but I am also very concerned about the remarkable growth in number and efficiency of their ballistic missile force, their [unmanned aerial vehicle] program, their long-range drones and their land-attack cruise missile program,' he said. 'All  of those concern me.' Talks to bring Iran and the U.S. back into a nuclear deal have stalled in Vienna. Critics of a possible agreement fear...
    Bucharest, Romania (CNN)As Vice President Kamala Harris was jetting to Poland this week, she got a mid-flight call from the White House.It was President Joe Biden, looking to make sure his No. 2 was up to speed on the administration's scramble to deal with a problem awaiting her in Warsaw, a senior administration official said. The Polish government was offering to send fighter jets through the US to Ukraine, an idea the administration had no choice but to firmly decline in a Pentagon statement the day before Harris' departure. Ordinarily such a scenario might prompt a cursory phone call between leaders to clear the air.But in this case, the administration's response was still unfolding as Harris was flying across the Atlantic to meet Poland's President and prime minister, raising the stakes for a trip that was already set to be one of the most intense moments of her vice presidency.She managed to avoid any public discord. But even a diplomatic victory left questions about how the conflict roiling Eastern Europe will end. "I want to be very clear. The United...

    THE US Air Force will develop a pair of combat drones next year that are designed to operate alongside fighter planes and bombers. “I’ve got two that I’m going to have in the ’23 budget in some form,” said Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall. 4The US Air Force will develop a pair of combat drones next year that are designed to operate alongside fighter planes and bombersCredit: Splash 4The Air Force might be doubling down on the 'loyal wingman' programCredit: AFP “They’re both unmanned air combat vehicles, unmanned platforms that are designed to work in conjunction with fighter aircraft.” The existence of the drone programs will be revealed formally in the budget request, said Kendall. The budget will go to Congress in early 2022. “These will be acknowledged classified programs but I am going to try to get them started in ’23.” It’s possible that the Air Force might be doubling down on the “loyal wingman” program, a drone that relies on artificial intelligence to fly alongside piloted aircraft.
