Harrison Ford Back on his Feet and Flying Again!

Solo & Chewie

Only 3 months after Harrison Ford was seriously hurt in a plane crash, the 72-year-old actor was spotted flying again, this time co-piloting a helicopter…



It appears that nothing can keep the pilot of the Millennium Falcon from flying. In a period of less than a year Ford sustained 2 major injuries. He broke his left leg while shooting The Force Awakens back in June 2014, and recently broke his pelvis and ankle, and suffered a severe laceration to his head, in an accident with his Second World War-era plane. The 72-year-old actor recovered remarkably quickly from both accidents.



Ford's Tesla


Last Wednesday Ford was seen behind the wheel of his silver Tesla in LA. This was his first public appearance since the plane crash on March 5.





Now some fresh photos from yesterday show the actor in great spirits walking again, smiling, and…. co-piloting a helicopter.





Ford did just a brief spin with the chopper, before landing again, and heading off the runway. It’s really impressive that the actor is flying again only 3 months after the horrible crash. The staff at SW7N wishes all the best to Mr. Ford and we hope that he will continue to fly modern aircraft from this century.

    Except that in a Helicopter, the PIC (Pilot in charge) sits on the right.

    This guy kicks countless amounts of ass.

    • May 30, 2015 at 10:30 am

      Chuck who? Chuck Norris? Nah, HAN SOLO!!!

  • May 29, 2015 at 6:16 pm

    Harrison Ford is the only guy alive that needs to dial down his own heroism to play Han and Indy. Hats off, Mr. Ford — you’re the best!

    • June 3, 2015 at 1:48 am

      Harrison Ford is one amazing dude! I can’t believe people want to replace someone so cool. I think that the people who want to replace him in any upcoming movies are just jerks who don’t think he’s worth it. I would do anything to meet him!!

  • May 29, 2015 at 6:18 pm

    doesn’t seem to have any gnarly disfiguring injuries, which is cool. weird to think how much older he is than Sean Connery in Last Crusade. he is of a very robust constitution, much like Clint Eastwood. hope they don’t kill him off in TFA. i hate the idea of JJ undoing the happily ever after both audience and characters worked towards in ROTJ.

    • May 29, 2015 at 6:39 pm

      To be fair, you’re accusing JJ of premeditation,

      smh. Those people that state “GL stole/raped my childhood” have got to be some of the most irrational and senile people for making such ridiculous statement like that. They say it like if GL went back in time to change their memories by alternating the past and it’s gotten to the point where whatever they say should be rendered meritless. They also seem like they have no life (probably a bunch of losers and loners).

      As for Ford, I’m glad that he’s ok but I wouldn’t be surprised if his character was killed off. It’s been stated many times that he has wanted his character to be killed off as he didn’t want to play Solo anymore (let’s not forget that he was the last one to get on board to reprise his role in TFA); heck, even going as far back as the OT, Ford wanted his character to be dead (hence why they ended ESB with him being frozen in carbonite) and it took more pay and some convincing for him to return in ROTJ.

        “smh. Those people that state “GL stole/raped my childhood” have got to be some of the most irrational and senile people for making such ridiculous statement like that.

        To be fair… the prequels predate the OT chronologically… when I was a kid I spent many years pondering what Darth Vader was like as a young person. I imagined someone that wasn’t intolerably whiny/ bratty. Even Obi Wan wasn’t done right… as he had stated in a new Hope… he was the reckless one, not Anakin. That’s not to say that the PT raped my childhood, but the PT star wars doesn’t connect properly with the OT star wars.

        & man… Harrison Ford! For his next trick, He will survive a nuclear explosion… without the aid of a refrigerator.

        • May 29, 2015 at 9:21 pm

          I’m sorry but can you quote the direct line that Obi-Wan said in A New Hope that he was the reckless one and not Anakin? I remember nothing at all like that.

          • May 29, 2015 at 9:41 pm

            “He Feared You Might Follow Old Obi Wan on Some Damn Fool Idealistic Crusade Like Your Father did”

          • May 29, 2015 at 9:45 pm

            Yoda to Luke(going from memory):
            You are reckless!
            Obi to Yoda:
            So was I, if you can remember

          • May 29, 2015 at 10:14 pm

            Literally! I totally forgot about that line… nice.

          • May 30, 2015 at 8:03 pm


            I was thinking of the one from ROTJ, but thanks for reminding me of the one from ANH!

          • May 29, 2015 at 10:48 pm

            touche’ !

          • May 30, 2015 at 2:52 am

            I know its not the movies but the Clone Wars cartoon does show Obi-Wan doing reckless things. He followed the rules but did act more like Qui-Gon as the war progressed, taking chances and doing dangerous missions when necessary

      • May 29, 2015 at 8:11 pm

        Two thoughts, Harrison ford has had the most publicly successful post-Star Wars career of the original cast. He worked hard for that, he knows that Han Solo launched him, but he doesn’t want to be remembered as JUST Han Solo. I can totally understand why he doesn’t want Han Solo to be the last role he plays.
        I can also understand from a character standpoint, would Han Solo really make it to old age with the kinds of choices he makes and chances he takes? Highly unlikely.

      • May 29, 2015 at 10:21 pm

        People act like Lucas went back to his beloved OT and added more CGI and changed iconic scenes, voices, and characters and then made a new trilogy that was completely filled with CGI, bad dialogue, and cringe inducing scenes and plot points that further tarnished the OT.. All completely baseless!

        • May 29, 2015 at 10:41 pm

          You have won my internet for the day.


        • May 29, 2015 at 11:11 pm

          There is CGI e.g. the Jabba Palace new song scene that looks like it should have never happened. But I thoroughly enjoyed the prequel. I’m sure GL doesn’t give a crap what you think. Get over it. You people whine worse than Luke in episode IV.

          • May 30, 2015 at 12:17 am

            That was his point…..

            Why do you guys act like CGI is the first and most major target of prequel hate?

          • May 30, 2015 at 4:17 am

            In my opinion.. prequel bashers are evil!

          • May 31, 2015 at 4:02 am

            LOL! If prequel bashers were the standard for what is evil, the world would be a much better place.

          • May 30, 2015 at 4:03 am

            Was Lucas hurt by the backlash or does he not give a crap? Which is it? It can’t be both..
            The truth is.. he does care. Why else would he put so much crap fan service in the prequels? He wanted to please the fans.. make no mistake about it!

    • May 29, 2015 at 7:12 pm

      Actually, Ford always wanted Solo to be killed in ESB…and, beside that, I don’t see how killing Han Solo after 30+ years could possibly ruin the ending of RotJ.

  • May 29, 2015 at 6:41 pm

    Seeing him healthy and back on his feet put a smile on my face. God bless Harrison Ford.

  • May 29, 2015 at 6:46 pm

    Looks like he could pull the ears off a gundark.

    • May 29, 2015 at 10:04 pm

      Meesa no like when yousa pull my ears off!

      • May 29, 2015 at 10:19 pm

        Watch out or Lucas may want to change “Empire” again to have Han say “You look strong enough to pull the ears off a gungan!” It actually is kind of a nice image though.

  • May 29, 2015 at 7:03 pm


  • May 29, 2015 at 7:03 pm

    totally off topic here but is it just me that thinks the new chewbacca in the image that goes with this article…just looks too new, too clean like he just stepped out of the salon. its been 30 years since we seen him, next to craggy old Han its just doesnt sit right i dont think, happy to see him but just think he would be more….lived in.

    • May 29, 2015 at 7:06 pm

      This is a problem a lot of us have been having. In comparison to his more rugged look in ROTJ, Chewey certainly does look very well groomed. None of us are sure what they’re lives are like this long after EpVI. There could be a good reason for why he looks freshah denah mafuckah

      • May 29, 2015 at 10:06 pm

        chewie has been getting laid left right and centre since he pulled that manouevre at the battle of Endor.

      • May 29, 2015 at 10:46 pm

        Probably a quieter life during the past 30 years.

    • May 29, 2015 at 7:46 pm

      i don’t know, Wookies have really long life like 300 or 400 years. I assume he was a young adult wookie in ROTS so 60 years is nothing for him and he should always be in his prime life.

      Besides that i saw rumors and concepts art where Chewie had a prothesis arm (right arm) so i might had through some epic battle.

      For me he looks like to the Chewie for Episode 3 but without the CGI.

      • May 30, 2015 at 5:58 am

        I don’t see any CGI in Ep.III Chewie. I need evidence!

        • May 30, 2015 at 3:17 pm

          evidence??? have you tried watching the film, its all there mate, cgi to death, looked terrible. afew shots they got of him but the rest was all drawn in pen

          • May 30, 2015 at 4:24 pm

            Just watched it again, still don’t see it. He’s surrounded by CGI, but he doesn’t look CG himself. Maybe I’m crazy…

          • May 31, 2015 at 11:53 pm

            There isn’t a single frame of Episode 3 where Chewie wasn’t Peter Mayhew in a costume. You’re seeing shit that isn’t there and didn’t happen.

  • May 29, 2015 at 7:07 pm

    Wow… this guy. Nothing stops him. I really thought this last one might have shook him up a bit. Maybe damaged him in a way that would force him to take it a bit easier.

    Nope! Crazy. Good for him.

    • June 3, 2015 at 1:58 am

      I so agree. NOTHING stops Harrison. he gets in a plane crash and 3 months later hes flying again!

  • May 29, 2015 at 8:17 pm

    No need for assmunching here.

  • May 29, 2015 at 10:22 pm

    Ford has always seemed to favor Indiana Jones over Han Solo but I think this is evidence that he’s got more of Solo in him that Jones. It would be hard to keep Han out of the Millennium Falcon but Indiana never flies by choice!

  • May 30, 2015 at 12:31 am

    I agree with some here in that Harrison wanted Han dead after Empire. I am ok with this. I just hope he dies heroically.

  • May 30, 2015 at 12:46 am

    Question his wisdom there-he’s starting to have accidents in his old age, might be time to quit while he’s ahead, perhaps take up ceramics..

    • June 3, 2015 at 1:56 am

      shut. up. I really cant believe that you would ever say that. my grandma has seen actors OLDER than Harrison Ford in movies and shows so if you don’t have anything nice about Harrison Ford to say, just don’t say anything at all!

  • May 30, 2015 at 12:49 am

    Brade Runner is another masterpiece created by Ridly Scott who is as visionary as GL. Sequel to Brade Runner is his next movie.

  • May 30, 2015 at 12:54 am

    han vs indy vs harrison ford. who would win?

    • May 30, 2015 at 6:42 am

      Indy shot first (Arab swordsman)
      Han shot first (Greedo)
      Harrison is no doubt badass but, he’s never shot anyone. That we know of 😉

    • June 3, 2015 at 1:53 am

      None, cuz they all kick butt!

  • May 30, 2015 at 5:43 am

    Awesome car…much better than the Falcon

  • May 30, 2015 at 6:00 am

    Harrison’s a tough son of a bitch but when you keep having major accidents and you’re over seventy it’s time to start exercising a little more caution before something happens that you can’t walk away from.

    • May 30, 2015 at 6:35 am

      You get that age and you realize you would rather die in a crash doing what you love than slowly in a hospital bed.

      • June 3, 2015 at 1:52 am


  • May 30, 2015 at 5:59 pm

    Yah know, considering his age it’s quite remarkable how resilient his body is.
    As someone whose Dad had 3 vertabrae replaced, I can tell you: This kind of body-damage is a lot of grief to recuperate from, so good for him having an awesome doctor and awesome bone-structure.

    • May 30, 2015 at 7:33 pm

      Well, he can afford really good doctors.

  • May 31, 2015 at 11:00 am

    3 Months ago?
    Time flies.

  • May 31, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    Wouldn’t have it any other way, neither him nor us, be it on a movie studio or in real life, mr. Ford is a pilot. That alone realization is worth it all.

  • May 31, 2015 at 6:19 pm

    please leave indy alone kk from lucasfilm!! it ended perfect!! please dont fuck with it.

  • May 31, 2015 at 7:05 pm

    So I guess we still haven’t figured out Reddit is a not a legitamite source of information by now? It was entertaining to read all the off the wall rumors last year but now we know the general outline of the movie making up fake rumors is getting old.

  • June 1, 2015 at 3:14 pm

    This man begs himself for an injury 😉
