Big Top Manufacturing Fabric Shelters Featured in Top Gun: Maverick

In the history of feature films, there have been quite a few fascinating aircraft-based blockbuster action movies, but few have had as much character and impact on pop culture as Top Gun. A staple badass all-American movie featuring the one and only Tom Cruise. Although not a sponsor, endorsed by, or professional consultant to, we’re proud to see our Big Top Fabric Shelters featured in the film.

Top Gun Chooses Big Top

During production, Paramount Pictures and Tom Cruise needed big top fabric structures for shooting a plane crash scene for their highly anticipated new Top Gun movie. They partnered with a famous Hollywood prop rental company who helped them construct custom-built shelters onsite during production. One of These shelters was placed at Squaw Valley Airport in Tahoe. Big Top Manufacturing is proud to feature our 40’x 60′ Shelter as part of one of Hollywood’s biggest summer movies, in theaters now!


Why is Big Top Manufacturing Fabric Shelters the Best?

When we talk about making top-of-the-line portable and fabric structures, there is one name that stands above all others in those arenas (ask Tom Cruise). That name is Big Top Manufacturing. These are far more than just gazebos or canopies; they are life and money saving features for any individual or business where weather protection may be needed in order to keep assets safe from lightning strikes or tornado blasts. To keep workers, cool, safe, and comfortable. As well as to save on a variety of expenses including electricity.  We’re still working towards ensuring protection from missiles, but if Tom Cruise feels safe leaving his F-14 Tomcat in one of our high-end hoop structures, we know we’re doing something right.

Our Customers Are Excited and Inspired By Our Top Gun Appearance

“Like a lot of movie fans, I was surprised to hear that Tom Cruise was reprising his role as hotshot pilot Maverick in Top Gun 2. But just as surprised to learn he would only be appearing in a small role—and that there was going to be no sequel. Instead, we’re getting a prequel about Maverick’s days as an instructor at Top Gun (the U.S. Navy’s Fighter Weapons School). That got me thinking about how useful it would be for my business if I could find an affordable fabric shelter modeled after one of those featured in Top Gun. And luckily for me, that’s exactly what Big Top Manufacturing has done!”
