Captain Of The Cockpit! Harrison Ford's Flying History -- 5 Photos Of The A-Lister In His Private Planes
Harrison Ford has a love for flying, piloting his own plane, surviving crashes and rescuing people, and RadarOnline.com has a closer look at him in the captain's seat.
Prior to Ford's plane crash in Venice, Calif. on March 5, he was photographed in 2014 in his plane after injuring his foot while filming Star Wars.
The Indiana Jones star first took flying lessons in the 1960s, but the $12-per-lesson price was too expensive for the millionaire-to-be, and he discontinued training. Ford eventually got his license in the 1990s and has owned multiple planes, including this his yellow Aviat Husky A 1C.
