Val Kilmer is an actor who plays Iceman in Top Gun and Top Gun: Maverick. He spoofed his role in an episode of Saturday Night Live titled Iceman: the Later Years, where Iceman is now retired from the Navy and in training for a career as a second officer on a commercial airliner. Snippets of Danger Zone were interspersed with scenes of crew working on planes and unloading luggage. The captain and first officer of the airliner treat their jobs as routine and professional, and seem to have no understanding of the gung-ho attitude that Iceman had at Top Gun. After landing the plane, Iceman suggests they exercise by playing volleyball, whereas the others say they must prepare for a connecting flight to Fresno and another says he is going home to his wife and children. Kilmer ends the skit by remarking "You guys are dangerous!"
