Veteran pilot Harrison Ford appears to have had another close call in the skies over Southern California. Less than two years after his small plane crash-landed on a Los Angeles golf course, NBC News reports that he was involved with a near-miss at Orange County’s John Wayne Airport on Monday.

NBC said the actor was piloting a single-engine Husky when he was instructed to land on a particular runway. Ford mistakenly headed for a taxiway instead, and his plane passed above a commercial 737 loaded with 110 passengers and a six-person crew. No one was hurt, and American Airlines Flight 1546 was able to leave for Dallas minutes later.

In March 2015, the Star Wars veteran suffered moderate injuries when his World War II-era PT-22 trainer plane crash-landed at Penmar Golf Course shortly after takeoff from nearby Santa Monica Airport. Ford, who has been flying planes for nearly 50 years and collects vintage planes, was the only person aboard and was outside the plane when first responders arrived.

“He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely,” his agency UTA said at the time. “He was banged up. … The injuries sustained are not life threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery.”
