Personally, I'd use this one from the criminally underrated (IMO) 2002 film Death to Smoochy:

Pics snicked from the linked article.

Updated: Here's another article that I just had to link to because they brilliantly referred to the pilot not only as a "Maverick-wannabe", but also as "cocky". I wish I'd thought of that. #writerenvy
