    The helicopter flown by Tom Cruise in "Mission Impossible–Fallout" was on display Tuesday afternoon in Fort Worth’s Sundance Square.

    The helicopter, a custom H125, was made by Airbus Helicopters Inc. in Grand Prairie.

    The company held a private reception in Sundance Square and employees screened the movie Tuesday evening.

    The chopper was trucked to the square at 1 p.m. and was offloaded by a crane.

    Cruise, a pilot, learned to fly the helicopter at Airbus before the movie was filmed, said Airbus spokesman Bob Cox.

    The action-adventure is set to open nationwide Friday.
