Staff and members at the Shropshire Aero Club are keeping their fingers crossed for a visit from their newest recruit - Star Wars hero Harrison Ford.
The Hollywood icon has signed up to the club while he's in the UK filming the latest installment of the franchise - and chief instructor Bob Pooler said Ford had paid membership fees until the end of the year.
Andy Bevan has the full story:
Hollywood icon Harrison Ford is flying high - literally - after signing up as the newest member of a Shropshire flying club.
The actor, who is also a licensed pilot, was apparently keen to rent an aircraft while filming the new Star Wars movie, but wasn't able to bring one of his own planes to the UK as he ran out of time before filming started.
So he got in touch with Shropshire Aero Club, and shunned their offer of temporary membership, instead stating he wanted to be a full member for life.
Chief instructor Bob Pooler took the call from the star himself, and - after doing the proper checks - delivered a plane from their airfield in Wem to Denham, close to Pinewood Studios where the new Star Wars movie is being filmed.
