Tom Cruise, the A-lister who is well known for his action films and performing his own stunts in Top Gun and Mission Impossible franchise is back at work. He was spotted taking flying lessons at Duxford Airfield in Cambridgeshire, England. The maverick looked like his usual self in pictures obtained by the Daily Mail, unlike those that were seen last month in San Francisco, California.
A series of pictures, taken as he attended a flying lesson on Friday afternoon in England, show that he looked like his usual self. However, just over a month ago, the handsome star looked different when he made an appearance at a game of the National League Division Series in San Francisco.

When Tom Cruise attended the LA Dodgers against the San Francisco Giants game at Oracle Park, on October 9, his appearance shocked and surprised fans. They commented on his puffy appearance. They questioned whether he had gained weight or had fillers and more. Some of them also commented that he looked like Norm McDonald, a Canadian stand-up at Saturday Night Live. The SNL actor passed away last month, while others said it was not Tom Cruise.
In the current pictures obtained by Metro, Tom Cruise looks like his usual self. The pictures show that he is learning to fly a 1943 Boeing-Stearman Model 75. German Air Force Pilot Klaus Plasa is teaching him to fly this World War II plane for Mission Impossible 8. Cruise already has a helicopter license as well as a fixed-wings pilot license.
Mission Impossible 7 is being shot in the U.K. It has been beset with a lot of delays due to the pandemic and is expected to be released next year. However, it looks like the 59-year old Cruise is already preparing for his next role in Mission Impossible 8; by learning to fly a fighter jet.
