A train carriage plunged into a quarry for a scene in the latest Mission: Impossible film - watched by Tom Cruise from a helicopter. An awestruck fan watched as the star waved at him from a helicopter while on set at Darlton Quarry in Stoney Middleton, Derbyshire. Peter Dalton, 42, said: "I had been up there since lunchtime after hearing helicopters nearby. "I arrived on the fields opposite on the cliff edge to see the carriage winched up by the cranes. They then attached the carriage to the actual track. "Tom wasn't there then but we knew he would be coming as we could see his helicopter flying in on flight tracker from the lakes. "We then heard his helicopter and it was really loud. He was about 50 feet away from us when we saw him looking at us and he waved! "Then he decided to turn his helicopter around and face us directly. He flashed his lights and waved again - what a decent down to earth man to do that." Filmed on 10th September 2021
