Capt. Maverick Reporting for Flight Duty
Tom Cruise has all the time appeared dashing in a go well with … particularly in a G-suit.
TMZ acquired this pic of Tom dressed as Captain Pete “Maverick” Mitchell for the ‘Top Gun’ sequel. These pics have been taken over the weekend at a base in Nevada, the place Tom additionally had time to chit chat with the Admiral there, together with followers.
It’s fascinating … Tom flew the chopper by himself in “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” however apparently even the good stunt actor has his limits. The different man suited up is the precise F-18 pilot Tom flew with from a base in northern California.
He apparently serves as Tom’s double based mostly on how the jet’s outfitted — the again of the fighter jet (the place we’re informed Tom was sitting) is mounted with cameras going through Tom’s POV. If ya didn’t know … Tom’s now a flight teacher who mentors Goose’s grown son. NICE!!
As for a way the fellows ended up in Nevada … we’re informed the jet skilled a “flap caution” (assume test engine gentle) mid-air. It made an unscheduled touchdown in Nevada and the duo jumped on one other aircraft headed for Cali.
Good to see the movie blasting full-speed forward. Last time we acquired a glimpse of Tom getting his want for velocity was again in May … casually using solo on a bike at a navy base in San Diego.
There’s clearly no grounding Maverick.
