The publication states that the pilot asked Maverick: ‘You know what happens if you go through with this?’ to which he responded: ‘I know what happens to everyone else if I don’t.’
The plucky pilot told him: ‘Alright, sweetheart, one last ride.’
‘He’s the fastest man alive,’ the control tower technician could be heard saying as Maverick sped off.
