I just finished this amazing book, it's written by Dan Pedersen, the founding father of Top Gun. It's written as his memoir in the Navy and how they were getting spanked in Vietnam and how him and 8 other pilots were given the go to create a training program for dogfight training at Miramar.

Read this book and thought it was very good. Recommended reading for any aviation minded.

I haven't seen a post from Top Gun for a long time now. I hope he's doing well.
