Mission Impossible 6 filming

Tom Cruise snapped in Queenstown while in NZ for Mission: Impossible 6

The movie star was snapped earlier yesterday when the helicopter he was travelling in landed at the airport to refuel, said the photographer, who didn't want to be named.

"He's been in a helicopter since 9 o'clock this morning (Monday), just flying around the whole of the Wakatipu. He's back out there now," he said.

While the chopper was refuelling, Cruise could be seen inspecting the aircraft.
