F.A.A. Investigates Harrison Ford and His Plane Again
The single-engine plane had just landed at Hawthorne Municipal Airport outside Los Angeles when the tower instructed the pilot to wait for another aircraft to make a touch-and-go landing before taxiing across the runway.
But when he did not, a scolding ensued.
“Get across that runway now,” the air traffic controller could be heard saying on a recording from the tower. “I told you before to hold short. You need to listen up.”
It wasn’t just another pilot. It was the actor Harrison Ford, who made the miscue on Friday around 3:20 p.m. You may know Mr. Ford as Han Solo, the swashbuckling pilot of the Millennium Falcon in “Star Wars.” Unfazed by asteroid fields and the Imperial Star Destroyer. But this wasn’t Tatooine.
Mr. Ford, 77, immediately owned up to the error, which was not the first time he had run afoul of flight control rules or been involved in an aircraft mishap.
“Excuse me, sir,” he responded. “I thought exactly the opposite. I’m terribly sorry.”
While there was no danger of a collision, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, the agency said it was investigating the episode.
Mr. Ford had just landed on Runway 25 at the airport in his Aviat Husky when the tower instructed him to hold his position. A two-seat gyroplane, which has rotors like a helicopter, had been cleared for a touch-and-go landing on the same runway, which runs east to west. – Source
