Same here. I was 20 and saw it in the theater. 12 years later, I took flight lessons and got my PPL. Not because of the movie, but because I've had a passion for aviation from birth and an avid flightsimer since 16.

I was 12 when i watched it...and it ruined my life. I wanted to become a Tomcat pilot afterwards...but i was born and raised in Argentina

Anyway, stopped counting after the 34th time i watched it (VHS + everytime it was repeated on TV).

But, it came at the right time, by then porn was not accesible for a young teenager, internet didn´t exist...so i would pause it many times right here:

And well...you can imagine the rest (or better not )

Was still in my dad's nutsack for another 6 years. Even so he didnt get to see that movie because dirty imperialistic capitalist propaganda showcasing victory over the proteleriat was not allowed where he was from at that time.

I didnt see top gun until a random tv rerun until I was 16. This may sound like blasphemy, but I didnt get into flight swimming until after I saw behind enemy lines.

I was 0. I am now 32! Best movie ever.

And it was the main reason why I've become a pilot in RL.
