Ford, who’s an avid pilot, was working a plane at California’s Hawthorne Airport and ended up crossing the runway as another plane was landing.
The 77-year-old actor’s rep said in a statement to Page Six, “Mr. Ford crossed the airport’s only runway in his aircraft after he misheard a radio instruction from [air traffic control].
