& # 39; Goose or Maverick? & # 39; Prime Minister Scott Morrison has his Top Gun moment when he appears on the cockpit of the USS Ronald Reagan
- Mr. Morrison spoke with 25,000 soldiers off the coast of Queensland
- He paid tribute to the relationship between the American and Australian forces
- He spent a day on the $ 4.5 billion ship for the Talisman Saber exercises
Prime Minister Scott Morrison had his Top Gun moment because he was proud of the cockpit of the USS Ronald Reagan.
He was on board the ship off the coast of Queensland as part of the biennial Talisman Saber exercises.
The exercises done during the biannual Talisman Saber were made to strengthen the alliance between the US forces and the Australian defense force and to help improve militancy.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison immediately appeared from an action film while he was proudly on board the USS Ronald Reagan
Mr. Morrison watched with awe as thousands of soldiers performed their daily duties in preparation for the Talisman Saber Exercises
Mr. Morrison arrived in style after he was flown in by an arrested landing on an American Navy C-2 Greyhound aircraft before he catapulted back to the coast.
He mixed with his military helmet, which was fitted with glasses and a vest over a bomber jacket.
Morrison was in awe when naval personnel continued and watched their usual daily activities as military planes boarded.
While he was informed about the exercises the aircraft carrier did, he eagerly listened to the daily duties on board the ship.
Mr. Morrison resembled Tom Cruise in Top Gun when he was shown with a military helmet and vest on the runway of the aircraft carrier.

Mr. Morrison described the $ 4.5 billion aircraft carrier, which has 4,500 crew members, as an & # 39; extraordinary symbol not only of US power but also of the United States' commitment to the many nations in this region and their safety & # 39 ;.
& # 39; It is not something we can ever take for granted. & # 39;
While addressing the military personnel from the deck of the ship, he spoke admirably about the power and might of the US.
& # 39; Yes, we respect the power and might of the United States that this ship so skillfully represents, & # 39; he said.
The prime minister spoke admirably about the & # 39; friendship & # 39; between the US and Australia when he addressed 25,000 soldiers while paying tribute to the US-Australia relationship
& # 39; But at the heart of our friendship are the values and beliefs that merge our two countries.
& # 39; Ships will come, ships will go, politicians will come and go, but our values will stand. & # 39;
& # 39; Australia and the United States see the world through the same eyes & # 39 ;, he said.
& # 39; Or, as President Reagan put it, & # 39; & # 39; & # 39; We both recognize the responsibility of freedom and are willing to carry the square & # 39; & # 39 ;. & # 39;
He listened enthusiastically while ship's officers described a number of functions and operations of the large ship
The American military newspaper Stars and Stripes reported that the ship had made a bumpy start and crashed into cranes in the port of Brisbane when tug boats caught up so that the sailors could take a short break for the exercises.
The incident under investigation caused minor damage to the ship and the spilled hydraulic fluid on the pier.
The USS Ronald Reagan was commissioned in July 2003 and is a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier with more than 5,000 officers and personnel.
