Man stunned as Tom Cruise lands helicopter during his hike while filming MI:7 in Lake District

A MAN was left "totally flabbergasted" when Tom Cruise parachuted into the middle of his hike.

Andras Katica was enjoying a day out in the Lake District last week when he heard a helicopter hovering overhead.

As it landed a group of men burst out – with the Hollywood superstar among them. 

Cruise proceeded to carry out a parachute jump while filming for his upcoming film Mission Impossible 7. 

And our remarkable video and pictures capture the star in action.

They also give Sun readers a glimpse of how the star might look in an upcoming Top Gun remake – due to hit cinema screens in November.

Last night Andras, who was hiking with pal Tutyi, said: “I certainly wasn’t expecting to bump into Tom Cruise during my hike. When I realised who it was I was obviously totally flabbergasted.

“But he was really friendly and offered to have his picture taken. He looked like he was having a great time but was also clearly involved in some serious work for the filming.

“By the time he parachuted away there was a little crowd gathered but Tom didn’t show any sign of nerves. He obviously loves the thrill of being involved in his own stunts.”

Colleagues with Cruise said they were in the area testing a new 'prototype wing'. 

Earlier this week the Sun revealed how the actor’s production team KO'd an entire field of cows after beefing up security while filming MI7.

The actor was performing more parachute jumps in the UK's Lake District when scrambling devices used to prevent drones interfering made the animals collapse in confusion.

The cattle got zapped as Tom, who does his own movie stunts, leapt from a chopper four times for his latest outing as action spy Ethan Hunt, right.

A source explained: "A high frequency noise was used to prevent drones flying near him during the parachute jumps but the tech was very strong and made an entire nearby field of cows fall over.

"Thankfully, they were OK once the scrambling device was switched off."

While the cattle might not be his biggest fans, Tom continued the charm offensive he has embarked on while filming across the UK.

He thanked some locals "for letting me be in a county of such beauty".

One who chatted to him with pals said: "We talked about the film and he said he loves parachute jumping and he's been hiking here a few times.

"He wasn't in a rush to get off and treated us like friends."
