CONTROL TOWER AUDIO: Plane Piloted By Actor Harrison Ford Crash Lands On Golf Course

LOS ANGELES (KRON) — Harrison Ford crash-landed his vintage two-seater aircraft at a Los Angeles golf course on Thursday afternoon.

Ford survived the crash but suffered moderate injuries, officials said.

The adult male occupant of the single-engine plane was taken to a local hospital, the Fire Department’s Erik Scott said. No one else was injured, Scott said.

The plane crashed into the Penmar Golf Course in Venice shortly before 2:30 p.m.

The 72-year-old “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones” actor has piloted planes and helicopters. According to entertainment site TMZ, Ford has crashed multiple times in the past.

The plane, which was yellow with stars on its wings, appeared to be a Ryan PT-22 Recruit, a vintage plane used for training during World War II.

Ford’s son Ben Ford posted an update on his dad’s condition on Twitter. “At the hospital. Dad is ok. Battered, but ok! He is every bit the man you would think he is,” he said.
