Harrison Ford Involved In Passenger Plane Incident At Airport

Harrison Ford was involved in a passenger plane incident on Tuesday as his small plane flew directly over a waiting American Airlines 737 at the John Wayne Airport in California.

Landing on a taxiway is a violation of Federal Aviation Administration safety rules and the agency is investigating.

"Air traffic controllers cleared the pilot of a single-engine Aviat Husky to land on Runway 20L at John Wayne Airport Monday afternoon," the FAA confirms in a statement.

"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."

The air traffic control recordings reportedly have Ford asking: "Was that airliner meant to be underneath me."

The 'Star Wars' actor began learning how to fly in the 1960s. However, he gave up after he couldn't afford the training. After making his millions, Ford once again took up flying after he bought a used Gulfstream II in the 90s and got flying lessons from the pilot.

He has been involved in several incidents and most recently was forced to perform an emergency landing on a golf course after engine failure on his single-engine plane in March 2015.
