The actor in the snap is surrounded by a boom mic and cameras and looks like it could be a behind-the-scenes view from a shot that might appear in the highly-anticipated sequel to the original fighter pilot movie, “Top Gun: Maverick.”

The movie is finally expected to hit theaters in November of this year after the release was delayed due to the pandemic.

Others joined in on the fun on social media to celebrate the day, from William Shatner to current and retired Navy pilots sharing pictures from the hit movie and even a few snaps from their own time in the air.
