Video Surfaces of Harrison Ford Airplane’s Taxiway Landing & Near Miss With An American Airlines Flight

Last week I reported on a Federal Aviation Administration investigation into an incident at John Wayne Airport in Carlifornia, when famous actor Harrison Ford landed on a taxiway and flew dangerously close above an American Airlines commercial airliner that was preparing to takeoff.  The passenger aircraft has 110 passengers on board.

Now, TMZ has reported video from cameras at the airport that capture the incident from two different angles.  Both show the aircraft gliding in over the AA flight that is taxiing to the runway as Ford’s plane touches down on a taxiway.  At the time, investigators said that the pilot accurately read back the landing instructions but then incorrectly landed on the taxiway.

This video will likely be a key part of the FAA investigation as it tries to determine what exactly happened and what, if any penalties Harrison Ford will face for the incident.  The FAA has numerous penalties that it can place on Ford if it finds the need to do so.  Penalties include fines or a suspension or withdraw of Ford’s pilot’s license.  Ford is an avid pilot and has logged thousand of flight hours over the years.  During that time, he has had a couple serious incidents, including a couple of years ago when he was forced to land on a golf course, an incident where he sustained some pretty serious injuries.

  1. As a pilot and reviewing the video on another site (since yours did not work), he should have his license suspended at a minimum but for the HIS safety and those of the travelling public, the license should be revoked. He has had one serious accident before and this should be the final step to avoid his death or the injury and death of someone else.

    • Thanks so much for the feedback on the video. It seems to be working on our end and apologize for any inconvenience!

      Thanks very much for giving your perspective as a pilot, that’s really helpful and insightful. It is sad since he clearly has a love of flying, but the FAA definitely has to take into account the danger he may cause.

      Thanks for reading!
