Harrison Ford Had Another Airplane Incident
I bet Ford can't even do the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.
Hollywood star Harrison Ford is once again in trouble over his piloting abilities, with the actor wrongly crossing a runway where another plane was set to land. Federal authorities are currently investigating the incident.
At Hawthorne Airport in Los Angeles on Friday, Ford was piloting his small aircraft across the tarmac when, according to his publicist, Ford misheard an instruction from air traffic control and crossed into the path of an incoming plane.
“He immediately acknowledged the mistake and apologized to ATC for the error,” his Publicist told USA Today. ”No one was injured and there was never any danger of a collision.”
The Federal Aviation Administration released their own statement, saying that a two-seat Aviat Husky plane (the one Ford was piloting) crossed the runway while another aircraft was performing a touch-and-go landing.
Ford is known for his love of piloting in his free time, and the actor making headlines a few times over the years for other piloting incidents. In 2017 Ford was involved in a plane accident at SoCal Airport where he crashed into a golf course and broke his arm. There was another incident involving Ford not following protocol a few months later. Both times authorities cleared Ford of fault, allowing the actor to retain his piloting license.
