Tom Cruise’s thirst for adrenaline truly knows no bounds as the actor was spotted rehearsing arguably his most dangerous stunt yet – hanging upside down on the wing of an airplane mid-air. 

The Mission: Impossible star took to the skies in Cambridgeshire in a yellow 1941 Boeing B75N1 Stearman biplane. 

After departing the Duxford airfield, Tom, 59, ascended to the dizzying heights of 2,000 feet, at which point he obviously decided to climb out of the WWII plane. 

The Hollywood star had been sitting in the front of the aircraft with the pilot in the back, then proceeded to climb out of the cockpit before crawling onto the left wing. Tom was harnessed to the 80-year-old plane and was seen dangling himself upside down from the wing. The plane then flipped upside down so that Tom was sitting upright on the wing. 

Then the real adrenaline kicked in as the two-seater aircraft took a dive – with Tom still clinging on for dear life on the wing – as well as a loop-the-loop. The movie star, clad in a brown jumpsuit and black helmet, then crawled back into the cockpit as the plane descended to land. 

It’s not known what project Tom was rehearsing the stunt for as he recently wrapped up filming the upcoming Mission: Impossible 7, but it’s rumoured an eighth instalment of the franchise is in the works. 

Tom is renowned for performing his own stunts with each becoming more death-defying than the last.

Some of his most famous include scaling the world’s tallest building, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, while he also clung to the side of an Airbus A400M at 1,000 feet in the opening scene of Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. 

The actor’s co-star Rebecca Ferguson recently teased what’s in store for M:I7, and told Metro.co.uk at the Dune premiere: ‘It’s just darker, gruesome, character driven. Oh my god – things changing, the status quo – it’s chaos. 

‘And incredible stunts – but we all know that. It’s just more. More, more, more.’

Top Gun star Tom is a keen flyer and boasts both a helicopter licence and a fixed-wings pilot’s licence, which should stand him in good stead as he masters an 80-year-old aircraft.

A source recently told The Sun: ‘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. 

‘Filming has only just wrapped on Mission: Impossible 7 but Tom has not given himself a break.’ 

Mission: Impossible 7 is set for release on September 30, 2022.
