Check out these Hollywood movies with amazing aerial stunts, including some from Tom Cruise’s Top Gun series, before ‘Fighter‘ hits theatres. On Thursday, the day before Republic Day, Deepika Padukone and Hrithik Roshan’s first joint film, Fighter, was released globally. ‘Fighter‘, directed by Siddharth Anand, who also directed the popular Shah Rukh Khan film ‘Pathaan‘ last year, is about the Air Dragons, an elite Indian Air Force (IAF) unit.

Along with other Air Dragons members, Squadron Leaders Shamsher Pathania (Hrithik Roshan), Minal Rathore (Deepika Padukone), and Group Captain Rakesh Jai Singh (Anil Kapoor) are prepared to sacrifice everything for the country despite experiencing highs and lows in their internal and external conflicts. A preview of the film’s aerial combat was shown in the ‘Fighter’ trailer. In fact, It’s being marketed as India’s first aerial action movie.

It’s not the only one, though, with pilots who undergo rigorous training and flying aircraft. Here are a few films with amazing aerial stunts, arranged in no particular order, including some Top Gun films.

4. Top Gun (1986):

Under Tony Scott’s direction, Tom Cruise plays a young naval aviator named Pete “Maverick” Mitchell who serves on the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise.

JD Dillard is the film’s director.

1. Dunkirk (2017):
