February 5, 2014_Oceanside, California_USA_| View of the 125 year old “Top Gun House,” on Pacific St. near the Pier. Scenes from the 1986 Tom Cruise movie “Top Gun” were filmed there. Workers from MC Painting, of Vista, are prepping it for painting they say will be done by Friday. It’ll be painted yellow and white. It’s a temporary paint job until it’s moved a block north next year to make way for a beach resort. It’ll have a complete restoration then when it’s incorporated into the resort, possibly as a gift shop or ice cream shop, or some other use to be determined by the resort’s developer. |_Mandatory Photo Credit: Photo by Charlie Neuman/UT San Diego/Copyright 2014 San Diego Union-Tribune, LLC (Charlie Neuman / UT San Diego/Zuma Press)
