He was the RIO Sundown in Top Gun who flew with Maverick after Goose died. He was following Maverick after a flight, saying 'we could have had him!' after Mav choked.

I think he was in some police dramas as well.


Yeah; he usually watched Chuck Norris roundhouse kick someone off the planet in Walker, Texas Ranger.
