In 1999, movie star and avid pilot Harrison Ford stopped in Duanesburg to check out some airplanes:

In 2003, Ford talked briefly to reporter Dan Dinocla, who wrote:

"I'm reminded of a time a few years back, when eager callers phoned the newsroom, tipping off editors that Ford was having dinner in a Duanesburg restaurant. One TV crew sped to the scene where a novice reporter, her heart pounding, did indeed find Ford dining alone. He accommodated her with a polite reticence.

"Once when I asked him about the incident, he shrugged, as if to say, 'What can one do in this situation, except be obliging?' It must have been uncomfortable for the megastar, whose presence has propelled dozens of movies. But he answered questions."

Ford was less lucky recently, when he accidentally landed his plane on a taxiway, not a landing strip.
