Tom Cruise is learning to fly a World War II military plane. It is for the preparation for the dogfight scenes in ‘Mission: Impossible 8’.
According to femalefirst.co.uk, the 59-year-old actor, who is famous for conducting his stunts in his action films, has been observed flying a 1943 Boeing Stearman Model 75 at the Duxford Airfield in Cambridgeshire, UK. Tom Cruise is therefore learning to fly the World War II plane for his stunts in the movie.
The plane, which has two movie rigs on its wings, will be filmed chasing down another warplane.
The filming on the upcoming ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ just completed. But the star has already begun work as agent Ethan Hunt for ‘Mission: Impossible 8’. It isn’t due out until 2023.
A source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “Tom had started to learn to fly a Boeing Stearman biplane earlier this year for a major stunt scene in ‘Mission: Impossible 8’. It’s obviously a highly skilled task. But as usual, he has no plans to cut any corners or bring in a stuntman.”
The source added: “Filming has only just wrapped on ‘Mission: Impossible 7‘ but Tom has not given himself a break. And trying to film jaw-dropping scenes with an 80-year-old plane is particularly dangerous.”
Cruise will also be flying planes in ‘Top Gun: Maverick‘. He has previously stated that there has “never been” an aerial scenario like the one in the film, which is a sequel to the 1986 classic ‘Top Gun.’
