is it a bird? Is this a plane? No, it’s just Tom Cruise parachuting off a cliff.

Cruz got out of the helicopter with a few others and then proceeded to parachute from a nearby reef. The actor was apparently rehearsing for a stunt.

the hikers talked Sun and admitted that the encounter left him “completely stunned”. “I certainly wasn’t expecting to bump into Tom Cruise during my hike,” Andras Catica said.

“But he was really friendly and offered to take his picture. It looked like he was having a great time, but was also clearly involved in some serious work for the filming,” Hiker said.

Cruz, who notoriously does almost all of his stunts himself, no matter how dangerous, is currently filming “Mission Impossible 7” in various cities in Europe.

Katika said, “The crowd had gathered by the time he parachuted away, but Tom showed no sign of nerves. He clearly loves the thrill of engaging in his stunts.”

Just last month, Cruise made it a family day when he landed his helicopter over their garden.

According to BBC News, the movie star needed a place to rest his helicopter and used Alison Webb’s Warwickshire yard.

Not only did Cruise pose with Webb’s husband and kids, but the “Top Gun” star took the family for a ride while attending a pilot meeting.

Cruise parachuted off a cliff.  He was practicing stunts for his upcoming film.

Webb told the BBC that he received a call that “a VIP who is running late” needed a place to land because the local airport was closed.

“I thought it would be cool for the kids to watch the helicopter land in the garden,” she said. “[Tom Cruise] Basically came in and out and it was like ‘Wow.

Webb described, “He went straight to the kids for a chat, then came over and elbowed us and said thank you very much. Then he said that if the kids wanted, they could go up in the helicopter.”

“It turned out to be an incredible day,” she said. “It was real, I still can’t believe it happened.”
