Two days after his wife of five years, Katie Holmes, filed for divorce, Tom Cruise is officially on the move.

Spotted aboard a helicopter taking off from Reykjavik's airport in Iceland, the Oblivion star, 49, hid behind a pair of aviator shades as the chopper took to the skies. Cruise's final destination has not yet been confirmed.

It is the first time the actor has been seen in public since Holmes, 33, filed for divorce Thursday in New York. Filing papers with the help of a New Jersey-based attorney, Holmes is requesting sole custody of the couple's 6-year-old daughter, Suri.

His wife's filing appeared to come as a shock to Cruise, who enjoyed a cozy family dinner with Holmes and their daughter just two weeks ago.

"They both looked after Suri and she was getting the main attention at the table, but Tom and Katie would look at each other and smile," an eyewitness at Sushi Samba, in Iceland's capital city of Reykjavik, told Us Weekly after the trio dined there June 16. "They were like all the young families that come in here. It's almost impossible to think they're getting divorced because they seemed very happy that night."

Around the time of their final family outing, Cruise offered an interview to Playboy in which he gushed about his wife of five years.

"She is an extraordinary person, and if you spent five minutes with her, you'd see it. Everything she does, she does with this beautiful creativity," the Rock of Ages star told the magazine. "She's funny and charming, and when she walks into the room, I just feel better."
