On February 13, Harrison Ford nearly crashed into American Airlines flight 1546, which was carrying 110 passengers and six crew members. Newly released video footage of the incident shows Ford’s taxiway landing. We have the Harrison Ford video surveillance from the near miss last week.
Harrison Ford has been a licensed pilot for quite some time. However, that has not kept the actor free from harm. A new video of Harrison Ford’s plane landing last week has surfaced. The video shows how close Ford’s plane came to a passenger plane, that was ready for departure. The incident took place on February 13 at John Wayne Airport in Orange County.
The latest video shows that the 74-year-old actor was very close to crashing into an American Airlines 737 passenger plane, with 110 passengers and six crew members on board. The CCTV footage shows Ford’s single-engine plane flying dangerously close to the commercial flight.
Upon landing, Ford asked air traffic control, “Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?” Harrison Ford had mistakenly landed on the taxiway, parallel to the runway he was cleared to land on.
The Federal Aviation Administration is currently investigating the incident, which could result in a warning to Ford or the actor losing his pilot’s license.
This is not the first time Ford was involved in an accident. In 2015, Harrison Ford crash landed a World War-II era plane after the engine failed. He landed in a Santa Monica golf course, resulting in head injuries and a broken arm. Harrison Ford was highly praised for maneuvering the plane to an empty area, and maintaining calm while communicating with air traffic control.
