Harrison Ford inadvertently lands on taxiway at SNA

Actor Harrison Ford was involved in a potentially serious incident Monday in California as he was piloting his private plane, a single-engine Husky, NBC News has learned.

Ford, an experienced pilot who collects vintage planes, had been instructed to land on runway 20-L at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, but mistakenly aimed for a taxiway, instead. His plane passed over the top of an American Airlines 737 carrying 110 passengers and a six-person crew.

He recently landed on a golf course somewhere as well, albeit he was forced to :yikes:

I think he is in for a short break from flying when the FAA has finished.

Agreed. From that angle you can quite clearly see that the Falcon was low on the glideslope :haha: :haha:
