Early in the movie, Ed Harris’ character has an experimental jet fly right over his head being piloted by Maverick. In real life, it was an F-18 and it flew with so much force it damaged the set!

“It blew the roof off the guard station. It was a fun scene with the jet roaring over my head. I was just holding my ground knowing what to expect. It’s really impressive seeing this jet coming at you from so far away and just flying right over your head … It was cool. These guys are professional pilots. I knew they weren’t going to run into me or anything,” Harris explained when talking about the opening scene with USA Today.
