Recently Ford had to do an emergency crash landing in his WWII-era plane. Being an experienced pilot, he was able to steer the aircraft out of harm’s way and put it down on a golf course. No one was hurt, and Ford was able to walk away from the crash. He’s a true, American Badass.
Up next: a funny guy you’d never expect to only fly private…

Rumor has it that Carrey loves his plane so much that it must also appear in any movie he’s in that features footage of a plane.

Obviously, many of the specs of Air Force One are classified, but it really is supposed to be a home and office away from the White House for the First Family and staff. The Presidential Suite has beds, a shower, a vanity, a double sink and a private office.
