Does somebody hold a gun to their head and expect them to profess global warming?

These days he is just a washed out actor and a very bad alcoholic.

Yeah, and that was back when he was younger and healthier.

Don't know about healthier. But that golf course crash as well as landing on the taxiway incident wasn't that long ago.

I flown in Long Rangers, with doors off. Two engines and a bigger body than a Jet Ranger. They seem tougher to fly than a Jet Ranger ? @Apache54

Incidents
On October 23, 1999, Harrison Ford was involved in the crash of a Bell 206L4 LongRanger helicopter (N36R). The NTSB accident report states that Ford was piloting the aircraft over the Lake Piru riverbed near Santa Clarita, California, on a routine training flight. While making his second attempt at an autorotation with powered recovery, Ford allowed the aircraft's altitude to drop to 150–200 feet before beginning power-up.[78] The aircraft was unable to recover power before hitting the ground. The aircraft landed hard and began skidding forward in the loose gravel before one of its skids struck a partially embedded log, flipping the aircraft onto its side. Neither Ford nor the instructor pilot suffered any injuries, though the helicopter was seriously damaged. When asked about the incident by fellow pilot James Lipton in an interview on the TV show Inside the Actor's Studio, Ford replied, "I broke it."[79]
On March 5, 2015, Ford's plane, believed to be a Ryan PT-22 Recruit, made an emergency landing on the Penmar Golf Course in Venice, California. Ford had radioed in to report that the plane had experienced engine failure. He was taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where he was reported to be in fair to moderate condition.[80] Ford suffered a broken pelvis and broken ankle during the accident, as well as other injuries.[81]
On February 13, 2017, Ford landed an Aviat Husky at John Wayne Airport (in Orange County, California) on the taxiway left of runway 20L. A Boeing 737 was holding short of the runway on the taxiway when Ford overflew them.[82]

Chuckle You rotorheads...

Ford has a pretty fair association with aviation. Let's not forget the times he's cranked up for personal SAR flights for Scouts or folks lost/stranded in the mountains.

More of a #metoo blackmail. Ford is one of the few non-pedophiles in Hollywood and therefore a target. He enjoys adult women, and whenever he comes to town to have one of his planes serviced he hits the titty bars. Everybody knows.

Work related. A Gyro Stabilized Jet Ranger is a common film tool.

The Earth and Sun go through their cycles. It was so before humanity - and will still be so in the future with or without humanity.

For anyone to think that us ants can influence those cycles is laughable. (and an obvious scam to squeeze Jane and John Doe through carbon taxes)

There is NOTHING like the feel of freedom in a helicopter, especially a attack type. Yeah3

Wonderful camera platform. With a film savvy pilot, amazing things can be done. My all time favorite pilot, John Applegate, passed away from old age a few years ago.

We were once working at 10k ft in the Sierras and flying close to tree tops. 10k is the ceiling for a lot of Jet Ranger work. So, I'm trying to work but, catch the rotor blades about 3 feet from touching the pine tree tops. I told John that, I couldn't concentrate being that close. He said, "Relax, no one is shooting at us". I miss him. A really great guy and an ace chopper pilot.
