"Mr. Cruise does in fact own P-51D "Montana Miss", which he purchased about 4-5 years ago, IIRC. He even did an interview with Barbara Walters while sitting on the wing of that a/c about 3 years back. I believe Matt Jackson did a dual-control conversion on the Mustang for Cruise, and also checked him out in the a/c."

I had heard before that, indeed, he does.

Ever since I first heard about it, I have been wondering what Tom's P-51 Cruise speed may be http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Yes, he does. He also owns a Pitts biplane, which he also flies.

What kind of moron would want to own a Mustang and not fly it?

Jerry McGuire? Show me the money.....

I agree 100% with ya Bearcat.

I actually think he's a better actor than most give him credit for. Watch Rainman (without the hate lol) and you'll see a character that really changes into a human being.

I think he shoulda kept his yap shut concerning Brooke Shields and her medical needs.

His movies all make bank. Has he made one that didn't turn a profit?

Agreed, the guy's a horse's patoot, but I wonder how many of us would be 'the same guy I've always been' after twenty plus years of Hollywood success. In a case like this, environment warps the hell out of whatever 99% of humanity has prepared to cope with it in terms of genetic background and upbringing.

Who's to say that the drives and talents that allow you to survive successfully in that environment don't make you kind of warped in the first place?

Even so, how many of us wouldn't absolutely leap at the chance to change places with him for a day or two?

Some of Tom's Movies were good. But IMO most actors are liberals, they don't want to work for a living, they want to play. They want to be in a Play. Acting is not working IMO. That's the attitude Hollywood has in general. But if I had many millions I too would probably have a toy plane.

Did any of you see one of those specials on the Rich Boys Toys? Not sure exactly what it was called. But it was about businessmen who had made a lot of money, some in the internet boom. They had different fighter jets as toys. And they were all checked out in them. Most of them were older and needed 8hrs of maint. to every 1hr of flying. It was a cool show. They had to know the nuances of their jets becuase a few of them were very finniky and could easily kill you if you didn't fly them right.

Beware of Thurman Munson syndrome. For those of you too young to remember, Thurman Munson was a catcher for the Yankees that had more money than brains. He bought a Cessna Citation jet and got behind the power curve and killed himself on final approach to an airport. A Mustang is even more unforgiving. I'm suprised that Mr. Cruise's insurers will even let him do this.

I want an E-Meter, but I think I have to join or something. Kind of like getting a free toaster when you open a checking account.

http://198.95.10.33/p_jpg/world/worldeng/corp/emeter.jpg

Mr. Hubbard developed the E-Meter based on the knowledge that the mind contains mental image pictures, actual recordings of past experiences. These pictures contain energy and mass. When a person views one of these mental image pictures, or thinks a thought, the E-Meter registers with precision the changes which occur in this mental mass and energy. The E-Meter does not diagnose or cure anything; it simply measures the state or change of state of an individual and serves as a guide as to what should be addressed in an auditing session.

It's funny you should mention asking Tom Cruise what he thinks of the FM of IL2....

I was driving home the other night listening to some really good guitar music. (Craig Chaquico - Center of Courage from Acoustic Planet) It got me to thinking of making a good IL2/PF movie. The only problem with IL2 movies is it's hard to get reaction shots. The pilots faces, while servicable in the context of the game are laughable in a movie.

Imagine seeing hands on the throttle and stick....the pilot looking madly over his shoulder for his enemy.... the straining on his face as he enters hi G manuevers. All this intercut with IL2/PF footage. How much more excitement would these kinds of shots add to IL2 movie making?

One pilot would be Tom Cruise in a P 51 all dressed in leathers and cap with goggles riding in a mock P 51 cockpit...... the other would be John Travolta in a BF 109 dressed accordingly, and in mock cockpit. They'd dogfight each other, and after a long struggle one would ventually get shot down...... as the music comes to it's end you see 'LIVE' shots of Tom ,and John in front of computer monitors and flightsticks....(or cockpits would be great)...
exhausted from the fight

I've seen some really great movies on here, but there is always something lacking. The human element is missing.

It might have been the music and how I pictured it in my mind, but I thought how cool would that be? (In my mind it WAS cool) AND it might get new people interested in WW2 flight sims if the movie were hosted on UBI...... Putfile...... Brake dot com.... etc etc.

Just a thought.....

lol... this thread is pretty funny.

Now what you people have to ask yourself is... would you rather be about 5'6, own a P-51, have been married to Nichole Kidman, slept with the most beautiful women in Hollywood, have close friends that own homes that look like this...

http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f178/myphotos1960/term2.jpg
(can you guess who owns this house?)

and last but certainly being the least (considering every media outlet publishes inflammatory remarks), have some simmers on some website complaining about your success...

...or.....

Would you rather be a simmer engaged in a bash fest focused on a person that will long be remembered after he is dead, while you the simmer will fade away...

Sure Tom Cruise acts like a wack job sometimes... but dont we all at times? Personally, i have a tremedous amount of respect for the man, not to mention i would love to live his life before i take my final flight into the wild blue yonder. No one will remember me 100, 200, 500 years from now. But i bet people will know the name Tom Cruise and still watch his movies..... (i think he did an awesome job in Collateral given his size... and to credit his latest work)

Wild Bill, im surprised you think acting is not hard work. Have you ever tried to memorize the amount of lines for a leading role? Then on top of that, make it entertaining? I have... its no easy task. Flying a full load of pax down to mins is easier. Landscaping for 10-14 hours straight, 6 days a week is easier. As an example, just watch SNL sometime (im sure you already do) and notice how "bland" it is when the actors read off their Cue-cards (which is 90% of the time). Notice what the most successfull actors do differently that move on to bigger and better from SNL. Jim Belushi is actually a benchmark. Acting is FAR from easy...

With all that said, you all are here bashing Tom Cruise, while Tom Cruise is flying around in his P-51 having fun with the most beautiful women in Hollywood (ok, so he's in a "committed" relationship now.. semantics). Where would you rather be? Envy will give you an ulcer... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Good guess.. you're right. Those are his "toys" parked in his back yard. A 707 in Quantas livery and a Gulfstream V. He had that house custom built in an exclusive FL community with a private airport. Most of us real pilots make fun of him all the time when he shows up on the ramp in his airline pilot uniform, but he's a good sport about it. Besides, he knows that most of us pilots would trade our lives for his in a NY minute.... although he is still not living down the time he lost comms over Wash DC and closed down the airspace for a good hour or two... but still a good sport when we rag on him about it....

I too enjoyed War of the Worlds. The special effects were awesome, and fun to watch. But the plot could have used a lot of work.

It contained quite a lot of elements from the book, though. I think the problem is more that 100 years have passed between H.G. Wells writing the novel and now, and there have been a lot of films about alien attacks in the meantime. It was revolutionary 100 years ago.

By the way - not sure what the 'actors are liberals and just want to play' thing is all about. There are plenty of actors that aren't liberals, and plenty of people who aren't liberals who don't want to work.

Doesn't John Revolta have to have some sort of machinery to push back that 707?? Surely he doesn't reverse thrust it to back it up??? He'd blow shingles off his roof doing that sort of thing. So I can easily surmise he doesn't just hop into it and take off right away, as that article suggests.

Wow! I bet Travolta could wake up and scramble his aircraft to the likes of British BOB pilots. I hope he gives Quintin Tarantino free rides now and then.

In making Top Gun, the real pilots gave F-14 rides to Tom Cruise and the other pilot actors so they'd know the experience. Well the pilots had a pool amongst themselves as to who could get their actor sick (loses if actor doesn't puke). Needless to say that none of the pilots lost any money. The only actor who didn't throw up was Tim Robbins (Merlin)--he didn't want to go up.

Maybe the P-51 will inspire him to produce a WWII movie. But hopefully not star in it. . .

I think Tom Cruise is a lunatic, possibly brainwashed

But never having met the man, I don't know for sure. That's my impression though. I stress that this is just my impression because unless you know him, I doubt it's very accurate to label him things like '*****'

Cruise has in fact made some bubble-gummy pop junk for films...but saying he's only done one film that isn't a 'comic book' is plainly false

I am not a Cruise fan, but I have seen the film 'The Firm' and I suggest others see it as well. It was not only popular, but a good performance by Cruise and not a comic book action film

Neither was 'A few Good Men'. Crusie has made more films than just Risky Business, Mission Impossible, Top Gun, and All the Right Moves. I mean, come on now. Critise his work by all means, but know his body of work first

if I had his money, you can be damn sure I'd have a P-51 or two as well

Well, I always liked Tom cruise, particularly since he seemed to like England, but when he went to Scientology, he lost a few points there.

Have you seen what Scientology is? basically, a millionaire`s non-guilty excuse for religion...

Even Hubbard's son has said that silly book was fiction

I think that a lot of Hollywood types might be into Scientology because it can sort of get tailored to their lifestyles while still providing the things that a legitimate religion gives them. I think it's a bunch of wacko nonsense myself but level-headed guys like Travolta are Scientologists too. Then again, I know for a fact that a crackpot can act normal for 15 minutes
