‘Star Wars’ Actor Harrison Ford Under Investigation For Another Aviation Incident

Star Wars icon Harrison Ford is reportedly under investigation due to another aviation incident.

While Harrison Ford may be best known for piloting the Millenium Falcon as Han Solo in the Star Wars franchise, the actor is also licensed to fly both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters in real life. Now, Harrison Ford is once again under investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration due to an incident that occurred at an airport in southern California last week, according to multiple reports.

The FAA said Harrison Ford was piloting a light aircraft that crossed a runway where another aircraft was landing. According to BBC, the Star Wars actor said he “misheard” the instruction from air traffic control but acknowledged and apologized for his mistake. Deadline notes that both plans were reportedly about 3,600ft apart and there was no danger of a crash.

This is far from the first aviation incident involving Harrison Ford. In 2015, the Star Wars actor crashed a Second World War vintage plane on a Los Angeles golf course, and in 2017, he flew over a jet after landing on a taxiway as opposed to the correct runway.
