A dog walker has filmed the moment that Tom Cruise paraglided over her head while he filmed Mission Impossible in the Lake District. 

Charlotte Burton-Delph, 44, was on a holiday when her childhood hero landed next to her on Sunday near Buttermere Lake in Cumbria. 

She saw a man gliding above the water in the distance and was stunned to recognise it was in fact the Hollywood actor filming upcoming Mission Impossible 8.

Stunning footage shows fearless Cruise, 60, dressed in his signature black clothes, boots and gloves as he smoothly glides from left to right towards her and her partner Adrian Burton-Delph.

Charlotte shouts ‘wow, look’ in amazement as Cruise turns right above their heads and descends towards the field next to them.

He then pulls off a standing landing and coolly runs until the blue parachute lies flat on the grass, which Charlotte’s four-year-old daughter Audrey Burton-Delph showed her approval of by shouting ‘good!’.

The teacher says her and Mr Burton-Delph couldn’t contain their excitement and she described it as ‘next-level cool’ in a Twitter post yesterday on August 1. 

It’s since gone viral with more than 70,000 views, with users hailing the clip ‘awesome’ and asking ‘is there anything Tom Cruise can’t do?’.

Charlotte, from Cromer, Norfolk, said: ‘We were there to walk the dog, but it just so happened that we stumbled upon Tom Cruise filming Mission Impossible. It felt very surreal.

‘We saw this blue parachute come around the lake and we only realised it was Tom Cruise when he came closer. It just happened that I managed to catch it on camera

‘It was amazing to see him glide right over our heads. It was a very cool landing. It was typical Tom Cruise.

‘It was weird to be standing there watching this film star who I watched when I was younger in Top Gun. I followed him when I was younger and I still am a fan.

‘Me and Adrian were thinking ‘oh my god it’s Tom Cruise, look at him he’s amazing’, but the kids didn’t get it. We tried to compare him to Bruno from Encanto.’

Charlotte says a helicopter was circling the lake and a large film crew were present in the field Cruise landed in.

She says the star was ‘brilliant’ for waving to onlookers once he’d landed the stunt – which she says he perfectly repeated three more times.

The teacher admits she and Andrew haven’t stopped talking about the moment since, yet admits Audrey and Agatha Burton-Delph, seven, won’t fully appreciate it until they’re old enough to watch the films.

The video has been liked more than 2,800 times and has been retweeted more than 300 times. One user commented: ‘Is there nothing this bloke can’t do? Awesome!’

Another said: ‘That was mission easy peasy lol, he looked to be going quite fast there, in the breeze.’

A third added: ‘Is there nothing this bloke can’t do? Awesome!’ After Mission Impossible 7’s release date was delayed until July 14, 2023, Mission Impossible 8 will be released on July 28, 2024.
