Harrison Ford under investigation by FAA for airport incident

The FAA is investigating Harrison Ford after the actor reportedly landed a single-engine aircraft on the wrong part of a Southern California airport, flying directly over an airliner that was preparing for takeoff.

The incident happened Monday at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, when the Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark star brought his single-engine aircraft in for a landing.

The Federal Aviation Administration does not officially release the identity of individuals involved in such incidents, but sources close to the investigation confirmed the details to EW. NBC News was the first to report the story.

The Aviat Husky involved in the incident was directed by air traffic control to land on Runway 20L. The official FAA report indicates the pilot correctly read back the clearance but instead landed on a taxiway beside the runway.

Ford’s plane then flew over American Airlines flight 1546, a Boeing 737 that was stopped just outside the runway, headed for Dallas with a load of passengers.
