Harrison Ford strolled through the open hangar door three hours early and immediately began chatting with the crew busy setting up lights and cameras. “You look so familiar.

Those seem to be Ford’s requirements of himself—even when he’s volunteering his time and powerful presence to a cause such as the GA Serves America Campaign.
