    Default Harrison Ford has another airplane incident

    FAA looking into a runway incident involving Harrison Ford


    By Chloe Melas and Stella Chan, CNN
    Updated 6:06 PM ET, Wed April 29, 2020





    (CNN)Harrison Ford is speaking out about a runway incident at a California airport last week.

    The actor and longtime aviation enthusiast was piloting a plane at the Hawthorne Airport in Los Angeles on April 24, when he crossed a runway where another aircraft was landing.

    "Mr. Ford crossed the airport's only runway in his aircraft after he misheard a radio instruction from ATC. He immediately acknowledged the mistake and apologized to ATC for the error," a representative for the actor told CNN in a statement on Wednesday. "The purpose of the flight was to maintain currency and proficiency in the aircraft. No one was injured and there was never any danger of a collision."

    A spokesperson for the FAA told CNN the two aircraft were approximately 3600 feet apart at the time.

    "The FAA is investigating an incident in which the pilot of an Aviat Husky taxied across the runway at Hawthorne Municipal Airport Friday afternoon while another aircraft was performing a touch-and-go landing," the FAA spokesperson said in an email statement.

    This is not the first time that Ford has made headlines when it comes to his piloting. He mistakenly landed on a taxiway of a Santa Ana airport in 2017. Two years prior, Ford was hospitalized after an aircraft he was flying had to make a forced landing on a golf course. At the time, an investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board said that the plane's engine had failed.

    In 1999, Ford had to make a emergency landing in a California riverbed while flying in a helicopter.

    And why do I have the feeling they need to take the car keys away from Harrison, too. I bet his driving isn't much better than his flying.

    I bet someone told him not to fly after his first accident.

    People are probably afraid to tell him because he's Harrison Ford.

    I’m not saying this out of arrogance....because Lord knows, anything can happen to anyone at any time. I’m just making a point of how rare these incidents should be. I have over 7,000 hours and have had one engine failure. That is highly unusual, and most pilots I know have not had any. If I were a recreational pilot and had had 2 engine failures and 2 (that we know about!) runway incursions, I might have to examine my choice of hobbies.

    ^^Exactly. He was never a good pilot, & his age is making it worse.

    Because you are a responsible person, Flygirl, and not a selfish asshat with a sense of entitlement like Harrison Ford.

    He needs to switch to a remote control plane. Worst he can do with that is annoy the fuck out of the neighbors.
