It might be time for Harrison Ford to hang up his pilot goggles and gloves (that’s what they wear, right?).
Last Monday, the 74-year-old actor mistakenly landed his single-engine plane on a taxiway rather than a runway — a violation of Federal Aviation Administration safety rules — and narrowly avoided contact with an American Airlines 737 with over 100 passengers onboard.
This is only the latest accident of the aviation variety for Ford, who seems to have a penchant for scaring the shit out of anyone who decides to take him up on that offer for a free ride. In 2015, he crashed his plane on the Penmar Golf Course in Venice, California, breaking his pelvis and ankle. In 2000, he crashed a six-passenger plane in Lincoln, Nebraska. The previous year Ford managed to flip a helicopter onto its side after a particularly hard landing.
If life truly imitates art, then we were warned about Ford being bad luck on planes way back in 1997. We just didn’t listen.
