Top Gun movie poster.

Movie (1986)

Tom Cruise (Maverick)
Kelly McGillis (Charlie)
Val Kilmer (Iceman)
Anthony Edwards (Goose)
Tom Skerritt (Viper)

When his wingman loses his nerve, Maverick gets the chance to attend the Navy's Fighter Weapons School, Top Gun. Here he meets his ultimate competition, his hero and true love but pays a tough sacrifice for it.

Northrop F-5F Tiger II

Portrayed as fictional "MiG-28" fighters, these aircraft are painted in fictional gloss black paint schemes with Soviet-esque roundels on the tails. They are claimed to carry Exocet anti-ship missiles, but are only shown with AIM-9 Sidewinders.
Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.

Northrop F-5E Tiger II

An F-5E portraying a MiG-28 seconds before being struck by a missile from one of the protagonists' F-14 Tomcats. The shots portraying destruction of aircraft were shot using models of the aircraft instead of the real airplanes

Grumman F-14 Tomcat

The main feature in this film is the Tomcat, the U.S. Navy's Air Superiority Fighter.
