Top Gun: What makes the Super Hornet so great?

Former Harrier jump jet pilot Paul Tremelling was one of just 12 Britons given the chance to fly the US F/A-18 Super Hornet.

The F/A-18 is the star jet in the new film, Top Gun: Maverick, starring Tom Cruise.

Asked about what was remarkable about the aircraft, the former pilot told Forces News that "there was not a nut it couldn't crack".
