A Hollywood “top” secret mission appears to be going down in Inyokern.

No one would confirm what exactly is happening at Inyokern Airport, but earlier Tuesday afternoon, Paramount Pictures production trucks were in the area, along with cameras, a P-51 Mustang World War II era fighter plane and several other fighter planes decked out in black paint jobs.

According to IMDB, Paramount Pictures is in production with “Top Gun: Maverick” starring Tom Cruise and is scheduled to be released in the summer of 2020.

CHP was out enforcing road closures from West Bowman Road to Highway 395 south of Inyokern.

Locals tell 17 News East Kern correspondent David Johnson, some crew members stopped by businesses in the area, and when asked, said the “Top Gun” sequel was what they were working on.
