“Ahahahaha, Harry, you so funny, saying that you’re going to take your Snoopy plane out tomorrow after you crashed that bitch a couples of time!”
The FAA is still investigating Harrison Ford after he landed his
helicopter plane on a taxiway instead of a runway at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, CA last week. Air traffic controllers told 74-year-old Harrison to land on runway 20-L at John Wayne and he reportedly repeated the instructions back to them, but when it came time to land, his brain said fuck it and he headed for the taxiway instead. It was reported that Indy nearly missed a 737 that was full of 116 people. TMZ posted video of Han Solo’s latest whoops in the sky, and they say that it’s a major piece of the FAA’s investigation. The FAA could either slap Han Solo on the wrist or suspend his pilot’s license.
My only experience with flying a plane comes from playing with this old Barbie plane my friend’s mom kept from the 70s, so that practically makes me an expert. And in my expert opinion, that “near miss” doesn’t look as dramatic as tricks made it sound. I thought that Harrison flew so damn close to the 737 that he could’ve high-fived the pilots, and he would’ve, because that’s a total Indiana Jones move. But still, the next time (if there is a next time) that Harrison Ford gets into the pilot’s seat on a plane, an emergency CODE 10 is immediately going to go out. Planes are going to land, runways will be cleared and dozens of birds will huddle under your patio like, “The sky ain’t safe, Han Solo is out there.”
