Harrison Ford almost flew his private plane into a passenger jet at a California airport on Monday, according to NBC News.

News reported that actor Harrison Ford was piloting the private plane, an Aviat Husky, that was involved in an incident at John Wayne Airport on Monday afternoon.

While trying to land, Ford flew over a fully loaded American Airlines 737 carrying 110 passengers and six crew members, according to NBC.

Air traffic control recordings captured Ford asking "Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?", the report said.

T-Mobile has not given specific details on the new resolution that'll be available to ONE subscribers, but "HD" likely equates to 720p.

The FAA told NBC News Ford was given proper landing instructions to land on runway 20-L at John Wayne, but aimed for a taxiway instead. However, the Star Wars actor isn't new to plane accidents, having been injured in a 2015 plane crash when one of his vintage plane engines' experienced trouble during take off.

Landing on a taxiway is a violation of Federal Aviation Administration safety rules. However, for now, it has been confirmed that Ford is safe, and unharmed, which is definitely good news. "The pilot then landed on a taxiway that runs parallel to the runway, overflying a Boeing 737 that was holding short of the runway".

Los Angeles firefighters are seen near a plane that was piloted by Harrison Ford when it crashed at a golf course in Venice on Thursday, March 6, 2015. The actor also crash-landed a helicopter in 1999 amid a flight lesson in Ventura County, California.

The FAA did not immediately respond to Variety's request for comment.
