Tom Cruise on Flying F-14 Jet for Top Gun: Maverick, “Was a Dream Come True”

Hollywood star Tom Cruise says landing the role of Navy pilot Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in ‘Top Gun Maverick’ was “life-changing.” The Hollywood star had always dreamt of being either a pilot or an actor growing up, and when he could combine both careers in one film, it was a big thrill for him, reports aceshowbiz.com.

The 59-year-old actor told HELLO! magazine: “All I ever wanted to be was a pilot or an actor, so ‘Top Gun’ was a huge moment in so many respects, including my passion for aviation.” He further gushed, “It was life-changing for me. I got to actually fly in an F-14 jet which was a dream come true, and play a character I loved in Maverick,” Cruise shared.

For the latest movie in the blockbuster series, ‘Top Gun Maverick’, he got to do more plane stunts than ever before. Tom Cruise said, “The P-51 Mustang you see in the movie is actually my plane, so I got to pilot in those sequences.” He continued, “I also got to be in the jet fighter a lot more this time, which was thrilling. It was something I had been working up to.”
