Harrison Ford’s Plane Involved in Near-Collision With 737 in Southern California

Veteran pilot Harrison Ford appears to have had another close call in the skies over Southern California. Less than two years after his small plane crash-landed on a Los Angeles golf course, NBC News reports that he was involved with a near-miss at Orange County’s John Wayne Airport on Monday.

NBC said the actor was piloting a single-engine Husky when he was instructed to land on a particular runway. Ford mistakenly headed for a taxiway instead, and his plane passed above a commercial 737 loaded with 110 passengers and a six-person crew. No one was hurt, and American Airlines Flight 1546 was able to leave for Dallas minutes later.

NBC News says Ford was heard on an air-traffic control recording asking, “Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?”
