OK Scran, lets try this one again.....

Album of the week

13. The Top Gun Plaque

Is plaque better than Trophy? Or am I on the wrong track again?


12th Nov 2002, 09:07
Banana99, you are suffering from a deficit to the value of "T". Manfred Man's song starts - "There she was....."

OK Scran, now I'll have to set Sheryl Crow on you!

12th Nov 2002, 21:35
OK - Revised Scores are:

Revised Scores -

Jolly - 21
Straight Up - 16
Flowman - 15
Reynolds - 7
Jet - 6
Pigboat - 5
Kenny - 4
Irishman - 2
Cooda - 1

Jolly is correct with November 5th, 1965, No 6 is indeed Little Town Flirt.

Flowman gave me Eden Kane, and read the question as to what INSTRUMENT Andrea plays, the Tin Whistle.

Now, with Album of the Week......

For 13...be specific!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm also a little disappointed in the responses to 17 - The "real name" of Goose IS NEVER MENTIONED in the movie.........however, after Goose is killed, Maverick is cleaning out Goose’s room, and picks up Goose’s dogtags, which were on top of his name patch, and you see the name – Nick Grady - the only place you can get Nick Bradshaw from is the Credits or Google.......so no points for anyone - RULE 4!!!:p :p :p

It's my bat and my ball and I'll not play if you're not careful!!!! :D :D

And can no-one (except Brite, who had help!!) tell me the Squadron on Goose's Helmet?

Bonus 5 points if you can also tell me the squadrons Nickname........
