    Harrison Ford in Airport near miss

    I think it's time he hung up his Biggles helmet...

    Harrison Ford 'in near-miss' at US airport
    6 hours ago

    US actor Harrison Ford has been involved in a near-miss while flying his plane in California, US media say.

    They say Ford, aged 74, was instructed to land on a runway at John Wayne airport in Orange Country on Monday.

    But instead he mistakenly landed on a parallel taxiway, passing over a waiting American Airlines plane with 110 passengers and crew on board.

    That plane safely departed minutes later. Ford has not commented on the reported incident.

    Just before the landing, the Indiana Jones star is quoted as asking air traffic controllers: "Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?"

    The Federal Aviation Authority confirmed that the pilot of the single-engine Aviat Husky plane had been cleared to land on the runway.

    But it declined to confirm that the pilot was in fact Harrison Ford.

    The incident was first reported by NBC and the TMZ website.

    The actor, who is a certified pilot, has been involved in several air accidents.

    In 2015, he was injured when his vintage plane crashed on a golf course in Los Angeles.

    In 1999, Ford crash-landed his helicopter during a training flight in Los Angeles but both he and the instructor were unhurt.

    He has been in accidents out of the cockpit too, breaking his leg in 2014 while filming a scene involving a door on the Millennium Falcon spaceship.

    Ford took up flying when he was in his 50s and owns several aircraft.

    ^ He's not looking at jail, all the FAA will do is yank his pilots license, or order remedial training, not exactly unreasonable under the circumstances.

    ^ I used to fly, if you're passing over any aircraft, but especially a large passenger jet on a taxiway (as he did) on final approach just before landing, you should have already figured out you've fucked up badly.

    Sounds like he's getting too old to fly.

    They need to pull his actor's license as well. The daft old git seems hell-bent on remaking all his best films.
    Someone should have sent an intervention (preferably by F-16) to stop him pissing all over "Bladerunner" last year, ffs.

    He should have been kicked out of Hollywood after that religious snuff film he did about 12 years ago. How anyone could have sat through Passion of the Christ, or why they would want to defies understanding, and that's not a shot at religious people.

    Yeah, how about doing a review when you've actually seen it.

    Groundbreaking idea.

    I suppose you could always do a pointlessly scathing review of the 90 second trailer.
