Harrison Ford pilots $18.8M private jet, picks up mom-in-law for wife Calista Flockhart's 58th birthday
Harrison Ford took off from New York to pick up his mother-in-law from Tennessee, and finally landed in Los Angeles to celebrate his wife's birthday
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Harrison Ford flew one of his luxurious private jets into Los Angeles on Friday, November 11, to celebrate his wife, Calista Flockhart's 58th birthday in style. The veteran Hollywood star and aviation enthusiast could be spotted seated in the cockpit with his headset on shortly after landing.
He appeared to be asking the air traffic controller for instructions on the last taxi across the runway, as per Daily Mail. Ford, 80, parked the jet in the designated spot, opened the cabin entry door, and then assisted Kay, the mother of the birthday girl, in climbing down the steps and exiting the aircraft. He originally took off from New York to pick up his mother-in-law from Tennessee, and finally landed in Los Angeles to celebrate his wife's birthday.
The 'Indiana Jones' actor beamed as he docked the $18.8 million Citation Sovereign Jet, the largest of his prized collection, with a top speed of 825 kmph and a range of 3,200 nautical miles, into a hangar. The actor appeared to scan the plane's exterior for a moment before opening the cabin door. The native of Chicago looked dashing with navy blue trousers, a light blue shirt tucked in, and black sneakers.
Flockhart then stepped out of the aircraft while holding one of the family dogs by its leash. Flockhart is well known to many fans for her title role as Ally McBeal (1997-2002) in the popular series. The actress wore worn-out black trousers, a gray sweater, and white classic Adidas sneakers to keep her look casual like her husband. Additionally, she had a middle part in her dark brown hair that was styled straight just past her shoulders.
Later, Ford and Flockhart gently helped her mother, Kay Calista, out of the jet and down the steps back onto the ground. Calista is retired and resides in Morristown, Tennessee, some 225 miles east of Nashville. The family of three then quickly climbed into an SUV that had just parked next to the jet and left, seemingly to celebrate Flockhart's 58th birthday.
Ford and Flockhart first met in January 2002 at the Golden Globe Awards. Their romance quickly blossomed, and they were married in June 2010.
