Chinese fighter video borrowed from "Top Gun"?

Thanks to the folks at AVweb for alerting us to this one. It appears that a video from the Chinese of their J-10 shooting down a jet in an air force drill was actually lifted from the movie "Top Gun." Reports are that a Web user noticed the similarity and posted the questionable clips. The Wall Street Journal then picked up on the story.

Here is the original Chinese news video:
