Now this is a memory of a lifetime! Jodie Gawthrop, a 16 year old living in Westchester, IL, was taken on a flight with Harrison Ford yesterday.
This occurred as part of the Experimental Aircraft Association‘s Young Eagles program. Ford stated that the program is “a huge group of dedicated pilots who all come together, donate their time, use their airplanes to introduce people to aviation.” Ford was the program’s chairman from 2004 to 2009, and has had his pilot’s license for over 20 years.
You can watch ABC 7’s video of the event here.
Is anyone else as impressed with Harrison Ford’s beard as I am?
