A dapper Tom Cruise waves to fans as filming for Mission Impossible 7 continues

Production on Mission Impossible 7 began again at the end of last month, after being paused and delayed multiple times due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

And a dapper Tom Cruise was pictured waving to fans at Birmingham‘s Grand Central Station on Monday, that’s been made to resemble Dubai Airport for the film.

The sighting came after the 59-year-old Hollywood actor surprised a delighted family when his helicopter landed in their garden in Warwickshire.

It proved to be quite a busy day for Tom who landed his helicopter in a fan’s garden.

Alison Webb’s family lapped up the Hollywood royalty’s arrival, after previously being told an unnamed VIP needed somewhere to land as a result of Coventry Airport being temporarily closed. 

Not only did the three-time Golden Globe winner pose for pictures, he gave a ride in his helicopter – for free – to Alison’s children and their friends.

Alison was informed that her field was required for a helicopter to land for an ‘unnamed VIP who was running late’, as the nearby airport was temporarily closed. 

Tom didn’t hesitate offering the free helicopter ride to Alison’s children, his pilot taking them for a fly as he attended a meeting.

Alison described the day as ‘incredible’ and ‘surreal’, whilst struggling to believe it happened.
