Ford's liftoff comes just days after Monday's incident, where an eyewitness spotted the 74-year-old actor's single-engine Aviat Husky make "a hard descend onto the taxiway" at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California. Ford's plane mistakenly landed on a parallel taxiway, passing over a Boeing 737 carrying 110 passengers and 6 crew members.
"Immediately after [Harrison's] plane was on the taxiway, several ramp agents just stopped and stood in shock," the eyewitness tells ET. "It was almost like they were thinking, ‘Dude, what are you doing?' [Harrison] then continued to move the plane down the taxiway. Other people in the terminal with me were really confused on what was going on. I never saw him get out of the plane because he kept moving the plane down the taxiway to a spot where he was eventually out of my sight."
Meanwhile, after Monday's close call, aviation expert Capt. Ross Aimer tells ET that Ford -- who was re-certified to fly just two weeks prior to the incident -- may have reason to believe his flying license is in jeopardy.
"I'm pretty sure the FAA is going to go after his license ... He will have to get a very good lawyer, get experts to testify that obviously he didn't do this maliciously," Aimer says. "I'm pretty sure the history will come up in the hearings."
