Tom Cruise hangs on wing of UPSIDE DOWN war plane for dangerous Mission Impossible 8 stunt

After pandemic delays, Mission: Impossible 7 is set to hit cinemas on September 30, 2022. Yet Tom Cruise has already begun rehearsing a stunt for Mission: Impossible 8, which will be released on July 7, 2023. The 59-year-old was spotted filming in Duxford when he was sitting on the wing of an upside-down 80-year-old warplane as did a loop-the-loop 2000 feet in the air.

Tom Cruise getting ready for take off

The Hollywood star was spotted sitting in the front seat of the 1941 Boeing B75N1 Stearman biplane, with the pilot in the back as they took off in Cambridgeshire.

The 59-year-old, who famously does his own stunts, has been having flying lessons in the bright yellow plane for several weeks. A few years ago he was previously seen piloting fighter jets for the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick too.

A second plane was also spotted flying alongside the Boeing B75N1 Stearman biplane during the rehearsals for the Mission: Impossible 8 stunt.

Tom Cruise was sat upright as the plane did the loop-the-loop

At 2000 feet, Cruise was attached to the 80-year-old World War II plane by a harness and then dangled himself upside down on the wing. So when the aircraft flipped upside down he was sat upright.
