FAA investigating airplane incident reported to involve actor Harrison Ford

The actor who was in a serious plane crash in 2015 had been instructed to land on runway 20-L at John Wayne Airport in Orange County California

Actor Harrison Ford was involved in an aviation incident at John Wayne Airport in which he flew over a passenger airliner and landed in the wrong location, Eyewitness News has learned.

While this story is still now developing, we do know that Ford was aware of the plane underneath him, as he allegedly asked the air traffic controllers, "was that airliner meant to be underneath me?" As a result of the error, Ford could have his pilot license suspended or receive a warning letter.

The incident has sparked an FAA investigation, since the taxiway landing is a violation of safety rules.

Ford, 74, was reportedly trying to land his plane on Tuesday afternoon, at the John Wayne Airport, and had gotten cleared for landing on a certain runway by air traffic controllers. "The pilot correctly read back the clearance", the FAA statement read.

Energy Sends US Producer Prices Up
Projections for the producer-price index ranged from an advance of 0.2 percent to 0.5 percent, according to the Bloomberg survey. On Wednesday, the Labor Department is scheduled to release its more closely watched monthly report on consumer price inflation.


A longtime pilot, Ford is listed among the "Living Legends of Aviation" on Wikipedia. A longtime collector of vintage plans, Ford just two years ago crashed a plane on a California golf course after the engine failed.

Ford has been involved in a series of crashes and near-misses while flying aircraft.

In 2015 he suffered a broken arm and minor head injuries when he was forced to make an emergency landing on a Santa Monica golf course in a World War II-era airplane.

NBC News reached out to Ford's representatives for comment, but did not immediately receive a formal response.
