Ward Carroll notices/hypothesizes that:

  1. they are in an F-14 stolen from not-Iran;
  2. Rooster was shot down by the not-Iranians and Maverick went into rescue him;
  3. Rooster is in the back seat and Maverick is flying;
  4. that is a not-Iran Su-57;
  5. Maverick will repeat his nose-up maneuver from the first film
