Just another pilot

My buddy, Glenn Brasch, sends along a link to this video on Harrison Ford, who is -- of course -- getting a lot of attention right now with the release of the latest Indiana Jones movie. Ford, as you may know, is a pilot -- just another pilot, as it turns out.

A few years ago, the former editor of EAA Sport Aviation, Scott Spangler, did a fabulous story on a group of pilots who went on a "backcountry safari" across the northwest. What made it great -- and why I respect Spangler's work so much -- is that he resisted the urge to identify one of the people as Harrison Ford.

By contrast, Lane Wallace, who is an aviation writer that I also enjoy, was on the same trip and couldn't resist.
