Newbie Artist Training Grounds III - Day 19 - Pony working out/ Pony training

Lyra and Bon Bon training to be wonderbolts, wonder how that's working out? This is based on the classic Top Gun scene. I've actually had this sort of idea ever since the Wonderbolt Academy episode. I briefly visited it before with my Day 7 entry but I decided to do it proper justice.

Did you use a reference for the tomcat?  Its dimensions are spot on.

And then Lyra was ejected from the Air Force for reckless endangerment of a superiors pie.

Top Gun reference with ponies. I'm slowly seeing everything crossed with FiM at this point...and yet each time it continues to be just as awesome as the last thing I saw.

Very nicely done here. :D

I didn´t know that there were planes in Equestria. But I see it fair. Why does the pegasi have to be the only ones with right to fly?

Don't mess with Soarin's pie, Lyra.  That will put you right into the danger zone.

I feel the need.....

The need...for jet engines to create thrust in order to have differential pressure on the wings which achieves aerodynamic lift at high velocity!  OW!

I never understood why people liked top gun. That's just me though.

That is pretty much it... its Tom. It was always Tom. Even the rock, still Tom.
