He's renowned for performing his own stunts in his Hollywood blockbusters.

And Tom Cruise may have pulled of his most ambitious feat yet as he was seen hanging upside down from the wing of a World War II biplane while filming scenes his upcoming Mission Impossible 8 movie.

The actor, 59, was seen filming the death-defying stunt at Duxford Airfield in Cambridge this week, with the 1941 Boeing B75N1 Stearman biplane performing a stomach-churching loop-the-loop and nose-dive with the actor onboard.

For the past few weeks, the action man had been taking flying lessons at the airfield in preparation for exhilarating scenes for the next instalment of the Mission Impossible franchise, which is set for release on July 7, 2023.

And the hard work appears to have paid off as the Tom took to the skies during rehearsals and was seen climbing out of the bright yellow biplane as it soared to 2000 feet.

The Hollywood actor, dressed in a brown jumpsuit and helmet, was then seen bravely clinging onto the wing of the 80-year-old aircraft as it performed a nosedive and an array of aerobatics in a jaw-dropping stunt.

The actor took off from the ground sitting in the front sit of the warplane, with the pilot taking the controls in the backseat.

The plane then took off and climbed to over 2000 feet, at which point the father-of-three clambered out of the cock pit and crawled onto the left wing.

As the plane soared across the Cambridgeshire countryside, Tom - who was attached to the plane by a harness - perilously dangled himself upside down from the wing.

Look at him go! The film star made for quite the sight as he flew across the Cambridgeshire countryside

The plane then flipped upside down, which then resulted in Tom sitting upright on the wing in the jaw-dropping move.

The World War II craft then performed a dive and a loop-the-loop as the A-lister clung on, before he then made his way back to the cockpit.

A second plane was also seen flying alongside the Boeing B75N1 during the rehearsals for the nail-biting stunt.
