Han Solo in his golden years when he returns to the silver screen?

Don't know much about Mr Ford aside from the fact he is an accomplished pilot, both in fixed wing and rotorcraft helicopter. He learned to fly about 20 miles from where I grew up and I knew the flight instructor who signed him off for his checkride. You'll see him at AOPA conventions from time to time and, as I understand, he's not terribly approachable. If you're flying around Jackson Hole, WY, and hear the callsign "Beaver two eight sierra" or "Helicopter three eight lima" on the radio, that's him as well.

Are you sure it's not "Sierra ate two beaver?" Thumbsup

RE: Harrison Ford
AOPA. I remember the joke Robin Williams did on AOPA on In The Actors Studio. He commented about the wings pointing down. It goes downhill from there.

I found the interview!





It kicks in at about 1:15. Funny stuff. Big Grin

Don't laugh. Didn't he fly Air Force One once?

RE: Harrison Ford
71? Are you surprised? Have you seen him on the talkshows lately?
He's a really old man. He's not aged as slowly as the rest of Hollywood.
The worst was when he talked to Craig Ferguson about still flying planes and the man could barely respond to questions.

Also, he is proficient and very good, if not the best pilot of a highly modified YT-1300 light freighter. He is practically unmatched when he is with his old war co-pilot.
