Harrison Ford could win man of the year in 2020.
The 78-year-old acting legend was spotted landing his plane safely at Santa Monica Airport with his dog after picking up his mother-in-law and taking it to Los Angeles for the vacation.
His flight on Wednesday comes just over two months after the Federal Aviation Administration officially authorized him to return to flying following an incident at an airport in April.
Best Husband Ever: Harrison Ford was seen landing his plane safely at Santa Monica Airport with his dog after picking up his mother-in-law on Wednesday
The Indiana Jones star looked as dapper as ever when he disembarked in jeans, a light blue button and a navy blue sweater jacket.
He all smiled as he stepped onto the tarmac with his little brown dog walking on a leash next to him.
Ford reportedly transported his mother-in-law, Kay Flockhart, to Los Angeles on his private jet to be home with he and his wife Calista Flockhart for the Christmas holidays.
Harrison and The Ally McBeal star have been married for 20 years and tied the knot in 2010. However, they were together for eight years after meeting at the Golden Globes.

They share one child together, son Liam, who adopted Flockhart in 2001.
In late October, the FAA gave the green light for Harrison to resume flying following an investigation into an incident at an airport in California.
The snafu happened several months earlier when Ford misheard the tower’s instructions just after landing.
He was told to keep the runway at Hawthorne Airport short because another plane was practicing touch-and-go landings there, but he still crossed over and taxied to the other end, much to the shock of the tower operator .

Ford apologized, saying he thought he had been told he was allowed to cross the track.
There was no danger of the plane crashing as the other plane was 3,600 feet from Ford’s when it hit the runway and was back in the air long before reaching the area where the actor was located.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) investigated the ordeal and eventually gave the Star Wars actor permission to re-pilot, according to the New York Times, after completing a “ remedial runway incursion training course. ”
However, the outlet noted that due to the agency’s rules, he had not been grounded while the investigation was underway and could continue to fly in the meantime.

This was not the actors’ first or even second aviation incident. In February 2017, Ford accidentally landed on the taxiway at John Wayne Airport and narrowly missed a Boeing 737 full of passengers.
Ford had been ordered to land on runway 20-L at the airport in Orange County, California.
But the then 74-year-old falsely aimed for a taxiway and passed an American Airlines 737 with more than 100 passengers and a crew of six.
Scary! Harrison has a long history of incidents, accidents and snafus throughout his decades as a pilot, including this one in 2015 when he crashed on a golf course after an engine failure
In 2015, Ford broke his pelvis and ankle when his WWII ST3KR plane crashed and crash-landed on a Santa Monica golf course.
Five years earlier, the wind forced him to crash-land in a Beechcraft Bonanza plane at Nebraska’s Lincoln Municipal Airport.
The plane skipped the runway and the wing tips were damaged, but Ford and his passenger were unharmed.
And in 1999, the star crashed a Bell 206 JetRanger helicopter into a dry riverbed in a Los Angeles suburb.
