Tom Cruise is getting his movies mixed up.

On a recent visit to South Korea to promote "Interview With the Vampire," he reverted to "Top Gun" mode and took a spin in an Air Force F-16 Falcon above Osan Air Force Base.Before going up in the fighter jet, Cruise was required to pass a flight physical and complete training in life support, the Air Force said from its Pacific Headquarters in Hawaii.

"He understood the different weapons systems and asked smart questions. He even took the stick and flew several maneuvers," said the pilot, Capt. Tom Abbott.

Cruise gave a thumbs-up after the flight. "It was a dream come true for me," he said.
