“She’s very supportive. She knows how much it means to me and she’s ok. I fly her all the time,” the 73-year-old star said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, admitting it is a new plane.
The accident occurred after the vintage two-seater fighter plane he was flying solo malfunctioned, forcing him to crash land
at the Penmar Gold Course.
The crash left the star with a “dislocated right ankle and a shattered pelvis and a broken back and a serious bump on the head with major lacerations,” he revealed, adding “Other than that, nothing.”
While visiting the show, he also confessed to DeGeneres that he was only a student when he flew her in a helicopter 17 years ago -- much to the host’s surprise.
“I don’t know what we were doing in the helicopter, I didn’t even have a license,” the Star Wars actor told producers before his appearance, which airs Monday.
“Yeah, but you insisted on flying,” DeGeneres responded after recalling they were “so close to the water.”
Ford tried to explain his actions in the video below by saying, “there was a, ya know, another pilot there.”
