Air Boss Johnson spilling his coffee.

He hates Maverick for buzzing the tower which causes him to spill his coffee on his uniform. He then goes to Jester & Viper and complains about the fly by that both Maverick and Goose did of his tower.

Johnson was also the Air Boss on the USS Enterprise during the dogfight with the MiG-28s in the final part. Maverick also requested a fly-by which Johnson denied again and the former performed it, again causing Johnson to spill coffee on his shirt.


  • In a deleted scene of the 20th anniversary DVD, Air Boss Johnson enters the men's locker room peeking at the Naval Aviators butts immediately following his discussion with Jester where he exclaimed "I WANT SOME BUTTS!"
