Video shows Tom Cruise riding motorcycle around airfield on the set of Top Gun Sequel

Tom Cruise was snapped speeding up and down an airfield, just as he did on a Kawasaki Ninja in the 1986 original

Taken on Jun. 1, 2018 the video in this post shows Tom Cruise riding a motorcycle around airfield as Maverick in first pictures from Top Gun: Maverick set.

The 55-year-old was snapped speeding up and down an airfield, just as he did on a Kawasaki Ninja in the 1986 original.

According to Daily Mail, the bike wasn’t the only vehicle present Maverick is used to handling; also parked at the San Diego military base was one of the F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jets that will likely feature in the movie.

The actor returns as Maverick in the highly anticipated Top Gun 2.

His character is now a flight instructor who will mentor Goose’s son.

Noteworthy as already reported Maverick’s ride for Top Gun sequel will be a cool special painted F/A-18F Super Hornet (which recently experienced a mid-air issue while it was flying with Tom Cruise on board).

The highly anticipated sequel to 1986’s classic/action drama starring Tom Cruise as a U.S. Naval Aviator has been delayed a year to summer 2020.

The movie was assigned a theatrical release date of Jul. 12, 2019 last year, but unfortunately for eager fans, they’ll have to wait quite a while longer to see Cruise’s titular character take to the skies once again. Paramount in fact has delayed the sequel nearly an entire year, assigning it a new release date of Jun. 26, 2020.

The added production time will enable the filmmakers to properly coordinate and design the many breathtaking aerial sequences planned to be part of the sequel. Considering how well-remembered Top Gun’s flight scenes are today, it’s no surprise that those involved with Maverick intend for the sequel to up the ante in terms of aerial artistry, especially with how much special effects have advanced since 1986.

Top Gun: Maverick will likely feature the Navy’s new Lockheed Martin F-35C Lightning II Joint Strike Fighters alongside older Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornets.

Last month in fact, a film crew from Paramount Pictures was aboard aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) the same time the Navy began launching F-35C jets off the ship interchangeably with F/A-18E/F Super Hornets as an integrated air wing.

Tom Cruise teased the start of filming on the long-awaited Top Gun sequel on May 31, 2018with a tweet featuring an image of an older Capt. Pete Mitchell standing in a flight suit with his famous HGU-33 helmet (that wore to fly his F-14A Tomcat) in hand.

The movie starring Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer is looking to cast the son of Maverick’s Radar Intercept Officer (RIO), Goose (played by Anthony Edwards in the original). Top Gun: Maverick will also see Kenny Loggins re-recording ‘Danger Zone’ for the movie.
