In recent years, we have all had the opportunity to hear about several aircraft accidents involving the famous actor Harrison Ford. The most recent incident occurred in 2017 when Ford was flying very low over the airliner. Fortunately, no one was injured, and no aircraft experienced damage. The whole case ended with a plane piloted by Ford landing on a taxiway at one of the airports in Southern California.
Just two years before this incident, in 2015, Harrison was very lucky when his plane, originally from World War II, crashed on one of the golf courses near Los Angeles. The cause of this accident was a malfunction of the engine.
However, the popular actor known for portraying Indiana Jones and Han Solo recently had another accident that may be his last. Namely, just a few days ago, the aircraft he was operating was mistakenly crossed a runway. Fortunately, no one was injured and a major incident was avoided.
According to the latest reports and statements from the actors’ representatives, the cause of this mistake is that Harrison Ford misunderstood the instructions given to him by air traffic control workers.
Ina Treciokas stated:
“He immediately acknowledged the mistake and apologized to ATC for the error. No one was injured and there was never any danger of a collision.”
The aircraft he operated is Aviat Husky, designed for up to two people. At the time Ford was attempting to land, another aircraft was doing the same, so it is really lucky that a major incident was avoided. According to his representatives, the actor wanted to fly in order to maintain the skills and knowledge about his aircraft. So, in order not to lose his routine.
This incident may be the last flight in Harrison Ford’s pilot career. There is currently an investigation into this incident at Hawthorne Airport in L.A., so it remains to await the statements and results of the investigation by federal authorities. Until then, we can watch Harrison Ford’s latest movie, “Call of the Wild,” released just before the global pandemic caused by the coronavirus.
