Because the airport he was heading to was temporarily closed, Cruise gave an English family the surprise of a lifetime.

Renowned actor Tom Cruise was recently forced to land his Mission: Impossible helicopter in the garden of a local family’s Warwickshire home.

The star ended up having to land her helicopter in a family’s yard because the nearby Coventry airport was temporarily closed.

The BBC has advanced the news of the incident and, according to a family member, Alison Webb, “I think it was great for the children to see the helicopter land in the garden.”

“Tom walked right up to the kids to chat, then he came over and nudged us and said thank you very much. Then he said that if the children wanted, they could go up in a helicopter. It turned out to be an incredible day. “

Before concluding, he stated: “It was surreal, I still can’t believe it happened.”
