    "Top Gun" musical contributor Kenny Loggins took a walk down memory lane on Wednesday at Solana Beach -- through the “Danger Zone”! (Published Wednesday, April 15, 2015)

    Kenny Loggins was out for a walk Wednesday at Solana Beach in north San Diego — then fast found himself in the “Danger Zone.”

    The musician — whose hit song "Danger Zone" was featured in a classic scene from “Top Gun" — happened to be at the beach near Del Mar when a Marine helicopter made an unexpected landing on the sand.

    The pilots landed the heavy-duty Sea Stallion when they noticed it had low oil pressure.

    Loggins, known for his popular songs of the 1970s and 1980s, posted a video on his Facebook page, saying: “I walked out there and said, ‘You’re in the ‘Danger Zone!’"

    His Facebook post had amassed 300 shares and more than 1,000 likes in the first two hours after he posted it.

    The iconic action movie "Top Gun" starring Tom Cruise was partly filmed in San Diego County.
