Did you know?
When we see Capt. Marshfield and Capt. Cummings walk the flight deck of USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) the patch on the front of Capt. Marshfield's jacket says USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) - this was one of the aircraft carriers used during filming.
A photo of one of the F/A-37 Talon mock-ups, snapped on the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln during filming was published in an Australian aviation magazine, claiming that the Talon was an actual prototype aircraft being tested by the US Navy.
Although the F/A-37 Talon and the EDI UCAV are both capable of short take-off and vertical landing (STOVL), they are shown doing conventional carrier take-offs and landings. Catapult launches and arrested landings would not be performed on such aircraft as it is unnecessary and very stressful on the airframe.
When the UCAV is first taken for a test run, Lt. Ben Gannon is heard to say "Let the schoolin' begin!" right before the fighters break formation, yet on the screens in the command center showing facial shots of each pilot you can clearly see his mouth is not moving.
Survival training must not have been a high priority for these elite pilots. Breaking radio silence over enemy territory to relay unimportant information and drawing attention to oneself while attempting to evade are just a couple of the errors these aviators make.
Is it considered proper military/naval protocol for service members to go out "clubbing in dress uniform?"
Their is no official service wide policy in effect in peacetime. Whether or not officers and enlisted personnel wear dress uniform, uniform of the day or civilian clothing to frequent bars and nighclubs while overseas and off duty. Then it is always up to the discretion of the commanding officer of each command/unit/ship/submarine to set forth the uniform of the day requirements regarding how service members will be attired while off duty and mixing with the local civilian population. Keep in mind that whenever in uniform American service members are representing their nation and should always be on their best behavior. While stationed in the USA then uniform requirements are often relaxed for local commands including those stationed in Alaska and Hawaii. For naval personnel, dress whites are always difficult to keep clean the majority of the time.
