Gregory Jbara Was Refused Boarding a Plane
Zachary, the eldest son of the American film actor, is a qualified pilot.
As a birthday present, Zachary invited Greg to fly with him during his test flight session. The father-son team traveled to California’s Santa Monico Airport with other family members.
However, the actor was not permitted to board the plane. His son’s instructor, Nick, urged him not to join the plane because it was a small four-seater with a big engine and full gasoline.
The airplane was completely loaded, and they didn’t want anything to go south.
So, at the suggestion of the instructor, the Detriot native stayed at the base and assisted his son from the ground.
