    Default Harrison Ford Seriously Injured in Plane Crash

    Harrison Ford Seriously Injured in Plane Crash

    Actor Harrison Ford was seriously injured Thursday when a vintage World War II training plane he was piloting crash landed on a Mar Vista, California, golf course.
    The actor was stabilized and taken to a local hospital. Sources said he sustained cuts to head. There was no word on other injuries or what caused the plane to crash. It appeared he was flying solo.

    His injuries were originally described as "critical," but sources emphasized they are better characterized as serious, including lacerations to the head and possible fractures.
    Howard Tabe, an employee at the Penmar Golf Course, said 'There was blood all over his face ... Two very fine doctors were treating him, taking good care of him. I helped put a blanket under his hip."
    The plane crashed on the golf course just west of the airport shortly after takeoff from the Santa Monica Airport, according to Ian Gregor of the Federal Aviation Administration, NBC Los Angeles reported.

    The article I read elsewhere said that he's a long-time pilot and has been in numerous crashes before. If that's the case, why is he still allowed to fly? I do hope he's okay, though.

    Well, on TMZ site it said it was a mechanical failure. It seems like these stupid little planes are the ones that are always crashing. If that's the case, there is no reason why he shouldn't be allowed to fly. I hope he has a full recovery soon.

    I haven't read any recent articles, but yes, he is a long time pilot. He is well known for volunteering his time rescuing people that are stranded out in the mountainous areas of CA by his own chopper, in often dangerous conditions. I've never heard about numerous crashes before, but I'm sure if he was a shit pilot, there'd have been a lot more press about his crashes. Like someone said up thread, those older planes often go down due to mechanical failure. I hope he's okay too.

    The same reason drivers are allowed to drive after accidents. If he's flying old WW2 planes he's at more risk of crashing an antique. He's a lucky man.

    Only Indy walks away from a plane crash. On a golf course. In a WW training plane. I wonder if there were people on antique motor bikes chasing him.

    He's okay, but you should have seen the big Nazi who accidentally walked into his propeller.

    I read that his son tweeted yesterday that Harrison is doing better. I'm so glad.
