    Fair question here: Sean D. Tucker (Chairman) and Harrison Ford both flew YE's during AV (saw it with my own eyes). Have THEY completed the YPP BC and training process? While I could surmise that it would be true for Sean to 'set an example' for the program, I seem to think that it would be incredulous for Harrison to:

    a. have been asked to submit to a BC

    b. actually done so if he had been asked. . .

    Which leads to a logical question: what makes either of them any different or special?

    Of course, none of this matters to me personally, as I will never participate in YE's for all the reasons previously stated in other threads.

    Personally I do see the value in knowing we actually served 2M YE and will celebrate that moment as well as the ceremonial one held at AV16.
    Fully appreciate and understand your quest for truth and honesty in all things, but as Cher said to Nicholas Cage in Moonstruck, "Snap out of it!" ;>)

    Me as well with thine eyes.

    a. Agreed, no.

    b. Agreed, no.

    Special? Harrison Ford? Well one, he's Hans Solo; two, he's Indiana Jones; and three he's Harrison Ford. Anything else you need to know?

    I wondered the exact same question. Anyone from EAA HQ wanna answer those easy questions? Has Tucker and Ford completed the training and BG checks?

    I have no inside information, but I'm guessing that Mr. Ford did go through the background check, and that's how they found out that a policeman did something extremely careless. (Where have I heard that phrase before?) I figure that was how this problem was discovered. The timing is certainly right for it.

    Harrison Ford was mistakenly given criminal record for battery: Actor's name was entered by rookie cop during training but he forgot to delete the data afterwards.

    Hal, if you will take this thread down I would appreciate it.

    Might as well take it down, the EAA is not going to answer any of the questions asked anyway.

    None of the NEVER YPP tribe mentioned this BS count flight until you brought it up. Not sure what you were actually hoping to accomplish other than stir the pot. Like they could ever answer "No, we made those numbers up."
