James Corden terrified as Tom Cruise takes him to 'Top Gun' school

Tom Cruise took James Corden to Top Gun Training School on Monday night's Late Late Show, which ended up being super awesome and hilarious.
Cruise picked Corden up at 4:56 a.m. at Burbank Airport in a private plane, where Cruise flew them to the desert himself. Some may remember the last time Cruise was on The Late Late Show in 2018 when he forced Corden to skydive. Now Cruise is promoting his highly anticipated Top Gun sequel, Top Gun: Maverick, so it was only fitting that they stay on the plane this time, but with Cruise as the pilot. "You're not a pilot, you're an actor," a skeptical Corden pointed out.
"With all due respect, you played a lawyer in A Few Good Men, I don't want you to represent me in court, okay? I'm going to get on a 75-year-old plane with someone who isn't a lawyer, pilot," Corden asked before running in the opposite direction.
Eventually, Cruise got Corden strapped in, where he warned him that should the engine catch fire, he would "drop the hood, tip the nose up 45 degrees, and then turn around" and eventually "throw" Corden out of the plane. Understandably, the late-night host was petrified.
Corden had a rough time with that first flight and even felt a little sick when he finally landed on stable ground again. So you can imagine his reaction when Cruise pointed to a modern fighter jet capable of warfare and told him that they would be flying in that plane next.
But after some top gun practice, a bit of singing, and even a conga line that included a small model jet, Corden was strapped in and hitting the highway into danger.
Of course, it wouldn't be a Tom Cruise flight if Maverick didn't reverse, which he did after telling Corden he'd "just fly straight."
"I love you and I hate you at the same time. That was absolutely outrageous," Corden said at the end.
