Actor and avid airplane pilot, Harrison Ford, once again is in the news after narrowing avoided landing on top of another airplane.  Monday afternoon, Ford was cleared to land on runway 20-L at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California, when he allegedly landed on the taxiway next to the runway.  A scary moment in time for American Airlines flight 1456, which was on the exact same taxiway preparing to take off with 110 passengers and crew aboard.  Air Traffic Control audio from the American Airlines pilots described the plane Harrison reportedly was flying was just 25-30 feet from striking it as it landed behind the commercial jet.  Harrison reportedly asked controllers, "Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?"  The FAA is investigating the near tragic incident, which could end with Ford having his pilot license suspended.  In 2015, Ford crashed a WW II era plane on a golf course after the engine failed resulting in minor injuries. Many close to Ford are concerned for the safety of the 74 year old actor and have urged him to retire from flying.

Should Harrison Ford continue to fly airplanes, based on this latest incident and incidents from 1999, 2000 and 2015?  Take our poll now on the 98.5 KTK Mobile app for iPhone [CLICK HERE to download> and Android [CLICK HERE to download>.
