Military exercise or Top Gun movie footage?

I’ve updated the post on chagning balance of power to mention that  China might have passed off footage from Top Gun as part of a military exercise (hat tip Market Ticker):

Did China Try To Pass Off Top Gun As Air Force Footage?

A few days ago, China Central Television showed footage of what they claimed was an air force training exercise conducted on January 23. From the looks of things, they were actually just playing clips from Top Gun.

The clips in question were reportedly aired during the News Broadcast program on China Central Television, the major state television broadcast company. They supposedly showed a J-10 fighter firing a missile at another aircraft during a practice exercise.

But an internet commenter quickly pointed out that the aircraft the J-10 was shown shooting down was an F-5, an American aircraft, and the very one Tom Cruise guns down in a scene from Top Gun. Comparing frames from the CCTV broadcast (left) and Top Gun (right), well, they’re lookin’ pretty much identical.

As the linked report says:

There’s no word yet on whether or not the Chinese fighter pilots engaged in any beach volleyball after the exercises. [MiniTofu via Geekosystem]
