Tom Cruise is no stranger to pulling off his own stunts, but even at the age of 59 he continues to push the boundaries. New photos show the ‘Mission Impossible‘ actor hanging from the wing of a plane while practising a new trick! The photos show Cruise hanging upside down as the plane flips and rolls.
The actor wore a safety harness so he wouldn’t fall off when the plane cuts in and out of the sky in the wind. The plane itself is a 1941 Boeing B75N1 Stearman biplane and performed the trick at over 2,000 feet in the air.
Mission Impossible 8: Tom Cruise Is Up Side Down On Airplane
We think it’s probably part of the gimmicks of the new Mission Impossible film, which has reportedly been filming in the UK for months. In the photos, you can see a second plane flying close behind Tom Cruise, which looks like he’s filming a training stunt and doing it right for the film.
In the photos, Tom Cruise can be seen sitting in the front seat of the plane before take-off. Once the plane was in the sky, he appears to climb out of his seat onto the wings to practice a gravity-defying trick.
Love him or hate him, you have to admit the man is an incredible talent and however he keeps his body up at this age, it works.
