Top Gun Tour

Yes, you read it right. It is Top Gun not Top Gear. In May 2016 we somehow managed to get an invite to go to Top Gun "Best of the Best" US Naval Aviators Weapons Development Training School. 

If this were in the UK it would be so secret that it would be more difficult to find than an enthusiastic European. Not in the States. Not only is it not secret, it is openly boasted about, and why not.

These trips are incredibly difficult to arrange so we can only do them when we have fixed numbers, set in stone. And they really are very, very limited. 

Those of you who are old enough to have had a little wee with excitement when watching Tom Cruise trying his hand in his Tomcat or perhaps Tom Cruise trying his hand with Kelly McGillis, will remember that in the film Top Gun was in Mirramar, California. Well, about eight or nine years ago it packed its bags and relocated in Nevada. And what a place it is. The town around which it can be found is no bigger than Wem but the base itself is bigger than Wales.

Happily it's not far from Virginia City another favourite place of ours, and incidentally the home of the worlds' greatest sweet shop.

So, in one day, you can watch the phenominal aviation activities of some of the best pilots you will ever be privileged to see and you can finish the day by stuffing your fat face full of chocolate and pecan pie wrapped up in a monster marshmallow drizzled with maple syrup and a caramel sauce, all dipped in sugar. Actually, that sounds revolting so you may just settle for a chewy bon bon.

Beat that if you can. If you can't, then give us a call and we will see what we can do. 

Better still, join us in September 2018. It's already in the plan.
