Another close call, in the air, for actor Harrison Ford.
He was involved in a near-miss on Monday (Feb.13) at the John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, as the private plane he was piloting approached the airport on the wrong runway.
His single engine Husky actually flew in over top of a commercial airliner!
An American Airlines 737 loaded with 110 passengers was awaiting takeoff when this potentially serious incident occurred.
Ford, who survived a plane crash in 2015 when he landed his vintage WWII aircraft on a Santa Monica golf course is a well respected, veteran pilot.
He had been instructed to land on runway 20-L at the airport but mistakenly aimed for a taxiway instead.
The passenger plane, AA flight 1546, managed to depart safely for Dallas just minutes after the incident.
Ford, 74, was captured on air traffic control recordings asking, “Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?”
Air traffic controllers then informed Ford that he had landed on a taxiway rather than the runway.
Landing on a taxiway is a violation of Federal Aviation Administration safety rules.
