Mission: Impossible 8: Tom Cruise ‘learning to fly a WW2 fighter jet’

Tom Cruise just finished wrapping Mission: Impossible 7 but he’s not stopping there, as he’s said to be learning to fly a World War II fighter jet, reports Metro.

According to the report, the star is going straight into filming “Mission: Impossible 8”, and it’s reported he’s going to be doing his best to pick up another high-flying skill.

Cruise can pilot a helicopter – as he demonstrated when landing in a couple’s garden in Warwickshire – as well as parachuting out of one.

But the actor will have to use all of his Top Gun skills if he wants to master an 80-year-old aircraft.
