If you saw the new “Top Gun” movie recently you can now see the real thing in the Colorado skies this coming Monday!

The Colorado National Guard will fly a formation of F-16 Fighting Falcons over multiple cities in the state on Monday to commemorate Memorial Day.

The flyovers are estimated to occur between 10:45 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. Monday over Denver, Boulder, Brighton, Thornton, Parker and Monte Vista.

The Colorado National Guard said the flyovers serve as training for the pilots and don’t cost taxpayers extra money.
