Harrison Ford was reportedly involved in a scary incident with a passenger aircraft at a California airport while flying his private plane on Monday, Feb. 13, according to NBC News.
The outlet reports that the 74-year-old actor was instructed to land at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, but instead mistakenly aimed for a taxiway. His plane allegedly passed over the top of an American Airlines flight with 110 passengers and a six-person crew on board. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is currently investigating the case.

FAA Public Affairs Manager Ian Gregor said in a statement to Us Weekly on Tuesday, February 14: “Air traffic controllers cleared the pilot of a single-engine Aviat Husky to land on Runway 20L at John Wayne Airport Monday afternoon. The pilot correctly read back the clearance. The pilot then landed on a taxiway that runs parallel to the runway, overflying a Boeing 737 that was holding short of the runway. The FAA is investigating this incident.”

This isn't the first time the Star Wars actor has faced troubles while pursuing his hobby for flying planes.
In March 2015, a small plane piloted by Harrison crash-landed on an LA golf course. At the time, he luckily made it out alive, but suffered a broken pelvis, ankle, and a few gashes to his head, and was bedridden at UCLA Medical Center for a few weeks after.

After the life-threatening accident, reports surfaced that Harrison's wife, Calista Flockhart, was begging her husband not to ever fly again.
“After the latest crash, she told him straight-out that she’d leave him if he flew again,” a friend shared at the time.
