Harrison Ford pictured swapping pilot seat for passenger as he looks in good spirits for flight

Sitting this one out Harrison?

Harrison Ford swapped the pilot seat for a more casual trip as passenger this week as he was snapped jetting out of Santa Monica airport.

Showing off a trimmed down figure in a casual t-shirt and trousers, the actor, 72, loaded all his own bags before stepping inside.

While he’s been spotted flying again after his horrific crash in March, he took a backseat this time.

The Indiana Jones actor flew his helicopter from Santa Monica to the Californian island of Catalina in his green 2013 Bell 407 helicopter, for the first time after the smash, in May.

However it appears he’s going for a longer stretch this time as he stepped inside a private jet.

Wearing jeans and trainers, he was dressed for comfort and appeared to be solo for the trip.

Sources close to Ford said that he was “very, very happy to be back in the air” at the time.

A friend said: “Harrison is delighted, he was in good spirits at the airport and was very much looking forward to getting up there.

“He co-piloted his helicopter and flew up and down the coast with a friend for a couple of hours.

“Harrison looked great. It was the first time he had even been to Santa Monica airport since the crash so he was really happy to see all of his friends there. He was given quite a welcome.”

The Star Wars legend’s determination not to give up his beloved hobby of flying will leave wife Calista, 50, somewhat anxious.

Following his near-death accident, she urged her husband of five years to stay grounded over fears for his safety.
