#SoaringScores #catchup
I know what you are thinking...”Deb...how do you get a Rob Lowe memoir from yesterday‘s #TopGunAnthem prompt?!”🤔Well, Tom Cruise was the star of Top Gun & Rob Lowe starred with him in The Outsiders 3 years before & hung out with him (& Charlie Sheen & Emilio Estevez) & this is a fun book with some Tom Cruise moments. Plus I don‘t have any Tom Cruise memoirs in my stacks & it‘s 1:30 AM & I can‘t sleep & it‘s all I got...😉

Cinfhen Your brain is a beautiful thing 💜It all makes sense to me 😘now sweet dreams xx 4y
Chrissyreadit You are hysterical! Love your connections! Also somewhere there must be a Kevin Bacon connection... 4y
CrowCAH Nice, love the thought connection you came up with! 👍🏻 4y

I know they were F-14 Tomcats in Top Gun, but I‘m using today‘s #SoaringScores prompt as an excuse to post a photo of my favourite aircraft, and tag the book that tells the story of its use in the 1982 Falklands War, including the remarkable logistics of the in-flight refuelling exercise required to complete 12,200km round trip from Ascension Island to Port Stanley.

Confession: I‘ve never seen Top Gun. It‘s one of those pivotal 80s movies that everything has seen...except me. And, I‘m not really interested in watching it.

However, I know enough to know that planes and fighter jets play a role. Why not celebrate aviation history? McCullough writes such great histories, and this one showcases the Wright Brothers. #TopGunAnthem #SoaringScores

Libby1 Same here about Top Gun! 🙋🏼‍♀️ 4y

Cinfhen Top Gun was really good, just saying 4y
marleed This book was a bit of a slow read for me but even still I‘m very glad I read it. I was unaware of the competition between France and USA to create a flying machine and found that fascinating. And talk about family loyalty! 4y
Librarybelle @marleed I haven‘t had a chance to read this one by McCullough yet, but I agree with his writing style. It‘s not narrative, and can be a little slow at times, but the information he conveys is extraordinary! I‘ve enjoyed what I‘ve read by him. 4y
CrowCAH We have the Wright Brothers to thank for getting us off the ground! 4y
ravenlee I saw it in college and still haven‘t figured out what the big deal is. I found it pretty boring, honestly (and I have always disliked Tom Cruise). Wish I had those hours back. 4y
Librarybelle @ravenlee I‘m not a Tom Cruise fan either! 4y

#SoaringScores Day 24: If this nonfiction picturebook had a playlist, it would include the #TopGunAnthem. The book reads like a magazine of sorts, with lots of images, very short captions – with enough reference to popular media to engage a developing reader you would like to entice into picking up a book. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-iPs

CrowCAH Love me some Bond, James Bond. 4y
