Video Released Of Harrison Ford’s Dangerous Airplane Landing
Harrison Ford came dangerously close to an American Airlines plane on the tarmac of a Southern California airport while landing his plane, and a video released Tuesday shows exactly how close.
The video captured the “Star Wars” actor landing his yellow, single-engine Aviat Husky on the taxiway of the John Wayne Airport in Orange County after flying just over a taxiing American Airlines 737.
The 74-year-old actor was supposed to land on the clear runway, but mistakenly landed on the taxiway that runs parallel to it, NBC News reports.
“Was that airline meant to be underneath me?” Ford asked the air traffic control tower when he was landing.
The Federal Aviation Administration is currently investigating the Feb. 13 incident. There were 110 passengers and six crew members aboard the American Airlines plane that Ford nearly missed while landing.
The “Indiana Jones” star is a collector of vintage planes and has a good record as an aviator. Before this most recent incident, Ford had only one other mishap when he crashed a World War II-era trainer on a Los Angeles golf course in March of 2015.
