“Mr. Ford crossed the airport’s only runway in his aircraft after he misheard a radio instruction from ATC. He immediately acknowledged the mistake and apologized to ATC for the error,” a representative for the actor told CNN in a statement on Wednesday. “The purpose of the flight was to maintain currency and proficiency in the aircraft. No one was injured and there was never any danger of a collision.”
This is not the first time that Ford has made headlines when it comes to his piloting. He mistakenly landed on a taxiway of a Santa Ana airport in 2017. Two years prior, Ford was hospitalized after an aircraft he was flying had to make a forced landing on a golf course.
FAA is currently reviewing this situation.
