A video from the scene of Harrison Ford’s Feb. 13 plane crash has surfaced, and it shows the terrifying moment he nearly flew his airplane into an American Airlines jet on the runway at John Wayne Airport. Check out the chilling footage here.
Harrison Ford, 74, was landing his plane like usual after a flight on Feb. 13, but something came this close to going terribly wrong. The actor just narrowly avoided crashing the aircraft right into an American Airlines 737 that was waiting on the runway of John Wayne Airport, and now, a terrifying video, obtained by TMZ, shows just how close he came to hitting the much-larger jet, which was carrying 110 passengers and six crew members at the time. Watch here:
As the video shows, he didn’t actually crash, and wound up landing safely several feet away. It wasn’t the exact spot he intended to land, but luckily, everyone was safe after the near-accident. However, the video will likely be used in the FAA’s investigation. This crash will probably have to be looked into by the Federal Aviation Administration, as landing on the taxiway violates the organization’s safety rules, and it’s possible that Harrison could get his pilot’s license suspended.
Still, the 74-year-old is certainly not letting this incident give him a fear of flying — just three days after the near-collision, he was photographed back in the cockpit, this time piloting a Cessna 680 jet. He was joined by a co-pilot this time around, and there was nothing out of the ordinary to report from the flight. However, his wife, Calista Flockhart, 52, is not on-board with the flying anymore. “She’s been begging [him] to stay out of the cockpit and retire from flying,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She says her heart worries every time he sits behind the controls of a plane.” Something tells us this isn’t gonna happen!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Harrison should still be allowed to fly? What do you think of this shocking video?
