Harrison Ford Allegedly Breaks FAA Rule Landing Plane On Taxiway

His single-engine Husky flew just over an American Airlines 737 with 110 passengers and six crew members aboard.

Harrison Ford was involved in an incident while piloting his private plane on Monday.

During his approach to an airport in Orange County, California, Ford "mistakenly" aimed to land his plane on a taxiway instead of a runway, NBC says. According to NBC anchor Tom Costello, the FAA is opening an investigation into the incident. "The pilot then landed on a taxiway that runs parallel to the runway, overflying a Boeing 737 that was holding short of the runway", Gregor said.

Ford allegedly said on an air traffic control recording, "Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?" to which controllers informed Ford that he had landed on a taxiway rather than the runway.

In 2015 he crash-landed a World War II-era airplane on a Santa Monica golf course after the engine failed, suffering a broken arm and minor head injuries.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the incident. In 2015, he crashed his plane at the Penmar Gold Course in Venice, California.

In 1999, Ford and a flight instructor were in a helicopter that crashed north of Los Angeles, according to a Los Angeles Times report at the time.

However, Ford, who trained as a pilot in the 1950s, is generally considered to be an good pilot in flying circles. However, since today's incident involved over 100 civilians, Ford's actions are required to be closely inspected by officials to make certain nothing out of the ordinary took place.
