Tom Cruise flies James Corden out in the 'Top Gun' Fighter Jet

Must See 24/05/2022

Maverick is back on the big screens after 36 years! (in NZ and some other countries). 

James Corden got a taste of what it's like being in the 'Top Gun' Fighter Jet and that too flown by the one and only Tom Cruise. Followed by some 'Top Gun Training' that James was not expecting, and more surprises followed right after.

Although Tom was super stoked to fly him around, the feeling was quite not mutual. James definitely tried to escape a number of times. 

From flying in between cliffs, to near the cliffs, being upside down, James got to experience the thrill of it all and we definitely felt it just by watching it too. 

Well of course they had to sing Kenny Loggins' Danger Zone up on the air!

After the plane 'finally' landed the relief on James Corden's face says it all. 

"Oh my god. I mean I love you and hate you at the same time" James said.

"It was absolutely outrageous" he added.

Tom offered him to be his wingman anytime, to which James replied, " I can be your wingman?"

"Anytime" Tom said.

"Do you know what? I think I'm good!", James said laughing out loud.
