Harrison Ford is being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration after an incident that occurred on a runway. The incident occurred at Los Angeles’ Hawthorne Municipal Airport on April 24th.

The actor was piloting an airplane that crossed the runway as another plane tried to land.

The two planes came within "approximately 3,600 feet" of each other. However there was no danger of a crash.

A spokesperson from the FAA said: "The FAA is investigating an incident in which the pilot of an Aviat Husky taxied across the runway at Hawthorne Municipal Airport Friday afternoon while another aircraft was performing a touch-and-go landing."

In an audio clip from the air traffic control provided by the FAA, a tower operator told Ford to "hold short" on the runway due to "traffic".

The operator then says in an annoyed tone: "Get across that runway now. I told you to hold short. You need to listen up."

Ford apologised to air traffic control for misunderstanding and doing "exactly the opposite".

A representative for the actor said: "Ford crossed the airport’s only runway in his aircraft after he misheard a radio instruction from ATC. He immediately acknowledged the mistake and apologized to ATC for the error.

"The purpose of the flight was to maintain currency and proficiency in the aircraft. No one was injured and there was never any danger of a collision."

This isn't the first time Harrison Ford, who is a keen flyer, has gotten into trouble with aviation authorities.

In 2017 at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California, his Aviat Husky nearly collided with a 100-passenger Boeing 737. He then proceeded to land on the wrong part of the tarmac. The FAA ruled he could continue to fly without restriction but was required to take "awareness training".

Moreover in March 2015, he was injured when his World War II-era plane lost power. He made an emergency landing at a golf course in Santa Monica.
