I dream of becoming a pilot because I envision enjoying my career to the fullest. Yes, I understand the hardships; they come, among many important factors, with pay based on seniority and attaining just the “right kind” of experience to be hired for any given company. I have no shame in enjoying the adventure, and even the danger and unpredictability of what so many people, regardless of intellect, would never consider. Just because I am willing to take a risk to keep travelers safe does not mean I am of a lower value. I say this not to insult flying at all; I only bring up a common debate topic because of how I was raised - the airline pilot “collar crisis” - in a community of like-minded scholars.

Armstrong was provided with many opportunities that continued to shape not only his professional career but his personal life. He flew aircraft that included a multitude of makes and models of aircraft. He was provided the advantage of attending multiple colleges, which nonetheless encouraged him to continue to chase his dream”NASA- National Aeronautics and Space Administration.” In addition to his dreams of outer space exploration, Neil Armstrong was awarded the American Dream of a wife and family. A successful career and a family to share it with seemed to be the very lifeblood of his dream.

With a fuel canister strapped to his back, May was one of the first men to take fuel from one aircraft and refuel another with in-flight. Obviously, if this was to become a practical means to conduct aerial refueling, some improvements to the process would need to be explored. The rudimentary method of aerial refueling in the 1920s has evolved into an operation the US military utilizes daily to get the mission accomplished. The history behind aerial refueling is long and wrought with challenges in the initial stages but has become essential part of numerous military activities and operations to date. Aerial refueling ultimately supports the idea of increasing range of any refuelable aircraft to do a variety of missions.
Thanks to support from the department of defense, “Top Gun” has spectacular scenes and seems very realistic to the audience. Although the movie glorifies life in the U.S. navy and makes being a fighter pilot very appealing, it doesn’t follow all of the department of defense guidelines and in some instances it breaks the rules. This essay examines the guidelines created by the department of defense and shows how the movie “Top Gun” followed and broke these rules. In the documentary “Hollywood and the War Machine”, the relationship between the military and filmmakers is put under the microscope. Guidelines created by the pentagon are set in place to make the U.S. military seem like a benevolent force for good.
