Harrison Ford Involved in Airplane Incident (Statement)
Harrison Ford was reportedly involved in a “potentially serious” airplane incident where he landed his aircraft on the wrong runway at John Wayne Airport in Orange County on Monday (February 13).
The 74-year-old actor ended up landing his plane near a passenger plane with 110 customers on board.
“Air traffic controllers cleared the pilot of a single-engine Aviat Husky to land on Runway 20L at John Wayne Airport Monday afternoon. The pilot correctly read back the clearance. The pilot then landed on a taxiway that runs parallel to the runway, overflying a Boeing 737 that was holding short of the runway. The FAA is investigating this incident,” the FAA said in a statement to Variety.
This is not the first time Harrison has been involved in an airplane incident – he was involved in an accident almost two years ago.
