News reported Monday afternoon actor Harrison Ford was involved in a potentially serious plane incident at a California airport as he was piloting his private, single-engine plane. His plane then passed above an American Airlines 737 loaded with 110 passengers and a six-person crew.
The plane, American Airlines Flight 1456, was able to take off about 10 minutes behind schedule and landed at DFW International Airport just after 5 p.m., according to FlightAware.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor couldn't confirm that Ford was the pilot of the single-engine Husky, but he says the pilot received and read back the proper landing instructions. No one was injured, and the passenger plane departed safely after the incident.
This isn't Ford's first brush with a potentially risky airplane incident.
Ford, 74, was reportedly trying to land his plane on Tuesday afternoon, at the John Wayne Airport, and had gotten cleared for landing on a certain runway by air traffic controllers.
He has been involved in a series of crashes and near-misses over the years.
The FAA is investigating the incident which could possibly lead to the suspension of Ford's pilot's license.
In 2015 he suffered a broken arm and minor head injuries when he was forced to make an emergency landing on a Santa Monica golf course in a World War II-era airplane. Camera assistant Eddie Aguglia told NBC News, "Looking at where he crashed and how the plane went down, I'm sure there was a moment where he said, 'I'm not going to risk lives, whatever happens, happens". Ford's representatives had no immediate comment.
