This is not the first time Harrison Ford has been involved in an incident with a plane that could have ended in tears. Only to walk away with minor injuries and clearly non the wiser of the event. Back in 2015, Ford's plane made an emergency landing at Penmar Golf Course in Venice, California where he reportedly suffered a broken ankle and some other bumps and bruises for his troubles.
Now he is back at it again, but this time the Federal Aviation Administration might not be letting him off with just a slap over the wrist. According to THR, the Indiana Jones star is under investigation for an incident that occurred this Monday at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California.
Ford On The Skids As Body Look Into Near Miss
The actor's love affair with planes spans decades, with the Hollywood icon receiving aviation training from the 1960s onwards. NBC News identiffied Ford as the individual involved. The FAA released a public statement to explain the details of the close call:
"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 FAA statement outlined. "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 National Transportation Safety Board explained they are looking into the details and will release more information when it comes to hand. Ford has not provided any comment on the matter as the FAA examine how such an incident could occur.
Fearless Ford Can't Help But Push The Limits
Fronting the hotly anticipated sequel Blade Runner 2049 alongside Ryan Gosling, the veteran flies in the face of his age and status to push the limits. An aviation fanatic from an early age, Ford was pictured earlier this week jumping aboard a private helicopter. Where he managed to jump on top of the machine before it took off.
Sporting a vintage green bomber jacket, the unusual move was made to ensure that what happened to him with the 2015 crash was not replicated. Only to be involved in another mad scramble just days later. Hopefully for his sake, that of his partner Calista Flockhart and everyone involved - he stays safe on the ground and in the skies for the foreseeable future.
