The actor and longtime aviation fanatic was piloting a aircraft at the Hawthorne Airport in Los Angeles on April 24, when he crossed a runway in which another plane was landing.
“Mr. Ford crossed the airport’s only runway in his plane after he misheard a radio instruction from ATC. He promptly acknowledged the miscalculation and apologized to ATC for the error,” a consultant for the actor explained to CNN in a statement on Wednesday. “The function of the flight was to sustain forex and proficiency in the plane. No a person was injured and there was by no means any risk of a collision.”
A spokesperson for the FAA explained to CNN the two plane ended up close to 3600 feet aside at the time.
“The FAA is investigating an incident in which the pilot of an Aviat Husky taxied throughout the runway at Hawthorne Municipal Airport Friday afternoon even though another plane was doing a contact-and-go landing,” the FAA spokesperson claimed in an electronic mail statement.
In 1999, Ford had to make a emergency landing in a California riverbed even though flying in a helicopter.
