F-35C is expected to appear in Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel of the legendary fighter jet movie Top Gun from 1986. The lifespan of F-35C in US NAVY will be significant and the jet will most likely play a vital role in the movie. Since it became operational only recently, the F-35C Lightning II is yet to prove how good of an aircraft it will be. Alongside with F-35A and F-35B, the US NAVY version will be the backbone of the US fighter aviation in the decades to come.
