Tom Cruises hands out a top Gun Fighter jet to James Corden ...

Tom Cruise, the actress of Top Gun, had been joined by James Corden for a very special YouTube segment ofThe Late Late Show. It was a journey that surpassed the thrills of aTop Gunmovie, and this time of year, it reportedly gave the late night host a heart attack (or at the least, a damp jumpsuit).

As their sojourn began, Corden waited outside of the Burbank Airport, where Tom Cruises charter aircraft picked him up at 5 AM. I feel like Im being kidnapped, and the host explained that he had no clue what he thought was in wait for them. By the time Cruise arrived, he explained that they were going to (gun) their shared adventures parachuting out of an airplane by landing in a vintage little fighter plane worthy of Top Gunitself.

Before revealing that it''s going to be the two of them heading up in the small jet, we''ll have aTop Gunday, according to Cruise.

Corden said that while you worked as a lawyer in A Few Good Men, I wouldnt want you to represent me in court, but he was simply not freaking out. Im going up in a 75-year-old jet with someone who isn''t a pilot. Okay, yeah, that''s kinda nice idea.

Between Cruises'' explanation of what theyd do during an emergency protocol (Im only going to turn over, and I''ll plop you out), the emerge of a competing jet (I dont want to fight them, Id like to go home, please), and the formation sequence so delightfully absurd that neither performer broke into fits of laughter (This is strengthening my belief that you dont have a clue about what youre doing), there''s a lot to love about this almost 15 minute clip (which you can see above

Despite a good dose of pleasure from Corden (which Cruise reveled in), both the late night host and actor took the journey to the danger zone and lived to tell the tale. And if Top Gun: Maverickis was even half as entertaining as that clip, then it would certainly be a powerful, sky-high hit to remember.

Maverickpremieres will be in theaters on May 27.
