Harrison Ford's in-flight air history with vintage planes is so shaky this his wife, Calista Flockhart, refuses to fly with him.
She will, though, fly with the "Indiana Jones" star when he pilots other aircraft.
Calista's reluctance is based on multiple incidents Harrison has had over the years, particularly his 2015 crash onto a Southern California golf course. In that incident, the acting icon broke his arm and suffered head injuries after crash landing his World War II-era airplane on a fairway at Santa Monica's Penmar Golf Course following an engine failure.
"My wife does not fly with me in vintage airplanes anymore — she will in others," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "I certainly don't want to have to recover from that kind of accident again. It was really hard on my family and it was hard on me. I went back to flying. I know what happened. So that's part of the reason [I went back]."
He added, "There was a mechanical issue with the airplane I could not have known about or attended to in any way. So in the words of the great philosopher Jimmy Buffett: S*** happens."
That wasn't the only time the "Star Wars" legend had an airborne incident. In fact, he had two runway mishaps within three years.
Back in 2017, Harrison mistakenly landed on the taxiway instead of a runway at John Wayne Airport in Southern California. He flew his single engine plane over an American Airlines airplane which was full of passengers. Harrison quickly knew he made a mistake and called himself a "schmuck" over the radio.
Then, in April 2020, he was involved in another incident at the same airport. This time, according to reports, Harrison was told to hold short of landing because another plane was on the runway. Harrison, however, said he heard the exact opposite, so he landed. Luckily, the other plane was about 3,600 feet away when Harrison touched down. In tower-to-plane audio, the air traffic controller sounded livid at Harrison over the mixup. The actor profusely apologized.
Harrison was also involved in an incident in 1999 in which he crash-landed a helicopter during a training flight. Then, in 2000, he was forced to make an emergency landing in his single-engine plane in Nebraska due to wind sheer. During landing, the plane clipped the runway and its wing tips were damaged.
