Harrison Ford attempted to land on a runway at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, but instead piloted his way onto a taxiway Monday afternoon.
News reported Monday afternoon actor Harrison Ford was involved in a potentially serious plane incident at a California airport as he was piloting his private, single-engine plane.
While trying to land, Ford flew over a fully loaded American Airlines 737 carrying 110 passengers and six crew members, according to NBC.
The actor was reportedly captured on air traffic control recordings asking, "Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?"
Ford, who last had his license renewed in 2005, has been in love with flight for decades now, but didn't purchase his first plane until the 1990s. NBC reported, and air traffic controllers told the actor that he had landed on the taxiway.
Landing a plane on a taxiway is a violation of Federal Aviation Administration safety rules.
Ford has been involved in a series of crashes and near-misses while flying aircraft. Ford, who collects vintage planes, suffered minor injuries two years ago when he crashed a plane on a California golf course after its engine failed. "The FAA is investigating this incident, however the pilot's name was withheld", Ian Gregor, Public Affairs Manager for the FAA Southwest division stated.
But Ford has had his good moments as a pilot, too. He was inducted as a Living Legend of Aviation. And in 2000, his Beechcraft Bonanza slightly scraped the runway during an emergency landing at Nebraska's Lincoln Municipal Airport. DEVELOPING: We will provide updates as they become available.
