    How about guy who played John Deed in the T.V. series Judge John Deed, his name was Martin Shaw. He flies his own Boeing Stearman, which he' has recently restored following a really bad accident in which the plane was almost a write off. the full story of the restoration was shown on one of the Discovery channels.

    God cant believe I'm contributing to Celeb related flying but to prove I'm an anorak
    Remember Gary Numan of Tubeway Army (???) he gave quiet an accomplished aerobatic display as part of a Harvard display team at Baldonnel airshow many years ago....
    Remember Barry Lang of 2FM (or Radio 2 ) he became a Airbus pilot and left the sucessfull broadcast profession behind to follow his dream.

    Now officially an Anorak :oops:

    A few more actors who fly including one whom I am surprised has not been mentioned - John Travolta. The others are less well known for their flying:

    Kurt Russell
    Patrick Swayze
    Dennis Quaid
    Clint Eastwood
    Sydney Pollack
    Morgan Freeman
    Michael Dorn


    This link will give you bios and details of licences and ratings. Interesting reading if interested assuming you have nothing better to do.
