Mission Impossible 8: Tom Cruise To Fly A World War II Plane?

Hollywood star Tom Cruise has reportedly been learning to fly a World War II military plane for dogfight scenes in ‘Mission Impossible 8’. The 59-year-old star, who is known for performing his own stunts in his action blockbusters, has been spotted flying a 1943 Boeing Stearman Model 75 at the Duxford Airfield in Cambridgeshire in the UK, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The plane, which had two movie rigs on its wings, will be filmed in a chase with another wartime plane.

The star has already begun his work as agent Ethan Hunt for ‘Mission Impossible 8’, which is not slated for release until 2023, even though filming has only recently wrapped on the upcoming ‘Mission Impossible 7’.

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 is also set to fly planes in ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ and previously promised fans that there has “never been” an aerial scene quite like the one that will be featured in the movie, which is a sequel to the 1986 hit ‘Top Gun’.

Meanwhile, ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ is now scheduled to release on May 27, 2022 after the consistent delay it faced due to the pandemic.
