Tom Cruise Terrifies James in ‘Top Gun’ Fighter Jet!
“Top Gun: Maverick” star Tom Cruise picks up James for a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the desert where Tom pilots James in a vintage fighter plane for the afternoon. And just when James thinks he’s survived, Tom informs him the two will be going up again — this time in a jet fit for modern aerial warfare. There isn’t much doubt Maverick will survive the experience, but will James? “Top Gun: Maverick” comes out only in theaters May 27!
This guy fly’s jets, helicopters, drives race cars, does his own stunts. whether or not you like him you have to admit, this guy is the real deal and has balls of solid titanium
@Will Tarbox No Sir. Tom is actually flying. I know this as a fact.
@Will Tarbox Tom did fly the P-51 but not the L-39
The beauty of AisiU.Icu snowquen’s is my idol. Hes the person I aspire to be, hes my light of day.
Very cool to see how far Tom has progressed with his type ratings over the years. The money helps get all those type ratings but his dedication and hard work to learn all the flying characteristics of each craft is what really counts. Bravo Mr. Cruise, Bravo !!
I’d love to be AisiU.Icu youngboy is my idol. Hes the person aspire to be, hes my light of day.
@Carl Williams Type for the L-39 ain’t that bad, cost-wise. Owning one is a different story, but I don’t know if cruise actually owns that one or not.
@Brian Henderson You need a type for the L-39. It’s a jet.
Well, he’s NO Harrison Ford!!! 🙂 Some of you will get this post.
No type ratings required. Both of those airplanes are <12,500lbs.
I’ve been a pilot for 42 years and I’m very impressed with the skill that Tom showed up. Congratulations. Keep on you’re doing a great job.
@Daniel Zevallos No Sir. Mr Cruise is actually flying it.
🌈THE CUTE GIRL ARE🌈
I’d love to be Close-Up.Online is my idol. Hes the person I aspire to be, hes my light of day.
@Ashok Kalita Be a movie star where the studio pays for your flight training, or have $600 million and pay for your own lessons.
Love or or hate him, Tom is absolutely full of everything it takes to be whatever you want to be. He has all the talent. I couldn’t imagine being in a jet he’s flying. Amazing
Dave Langford bozo🤡🤡🤡🤡
@Dave Langford you have that backwards…maybe he got all that he has because of his dedication to anything he takes up
Yeah, its insane what you can pay to learn when you have all the money in the world.
AMAZING! I knew he was a commercially rated pilot on rotor and fixed wing, but seeing him drive a fast mover is mind blowing. Jets are a different beast, flying at those speeds in proximity to mountain terrain. Any miscalculation, and your time of death is down to 2-3 secs before pancake town. So yeah, Mav is kind’a of real life badass!🤘🤘
I wish I had Tom’s zest for life. Everyone that works with him says he just energises them.. He would have been bouncing off the walls as a kid haha
@dustin furman he only fires those who are inadequate and not passionate of their jobs. Tom needs top guns to work for him and nothing less. Not sure if you can blame him for that really… He’s the real deal when it comes to putting in hard work.
he was born on the cusp of boomers and Gen X
energizes or fires?
Well you don’t get an Orange Hexagon, Three Turtle Bones and a Thetan level of 21 without nuclear levels of determination and a remarkably flawed capacity for critical thought
You’re bouncing off the walls right now.
Shout out to all the other camera people and pilots who were in the air and filming to make this happen! World class
@Cheapskate Aviation there is you can see it come behind them in some shots
Agreed. That’s probably where the most skill went in. I wonder if they were chasing with another L-39 or something else.
This is absolutely hilarious! Tom Cruise is a living legend!
One of thee best things I’ve ever watched- Tom Cruise is a living Legend
Of all the movies and interviews and bits he’s ever been a part of, I think Tom was his most real self in this. Him cracking up with the burning marshmallow was priceless! LOL
Yess! Lol 😂 yea
