Harrison Ford avoids action over near-miss plane landing

Harrison Ford avoids action over near-miss plane landingHollywood star Harrison Ford is to avoid punishment over a near-miss at a California airport as he was piloting his private plane, his lawyer told AFP on Monday. Ford, a seasoned pilot and vintage plane collector, was approaching John Wayne Airport in Orange County in February when he headed toward a taxiway rather than the runway, passing over a Boeing 737 with 110 passengers and six crew on board. The 74-year-old “Indiana Jones” star was captured on air traffic control recordings released subsequently by the Federal Aviation Administration calling himself a “schmuck,” and saying he he had been distracted by two jets.
