KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Top Gun: Maverick is flying into theaters Memorial Day weekend.

To celebrate the release, Union Station is giving fans an experience you can only get by visiting the Kansas City Landmark.

Union Station features an exhibit of Top Gun memorabilia.

Most of the items belong to Commander Jesse Reed, a true Top Gun naval aviator.

Visitors can view his MILSPEC leather flight jacket and helmet. A 50mm round shell, a model F/A-18E multirole fighter aircraft, and an anchor point of a landing aircraft carrier are also part of the exhibit.

You will also be able to see an actual Navy flight log used by pilots to keep track of their flying hours.

The display will be in Union Station’s Extreme Screen Lobby until June 16.

Watch the video in the player at the top of the page to hear Commander Reed to see what he thinks of the new movie and what you won’t see there.

Fans can also watch Top Gun: Maverick at the Regnier Extreme Screen Theater in Union Station. It is the largest screen in the region.

It starts showing Top Gun: Maverick on Thursday, May 26. Tickets are $8 for adults and $7 for children until June 16. There are three shows a day.
