On Monday, actor Harrison Ford was reportedly involved in a high-risk incident while flying his private plane, according to NBC News. Ford's mix-up caused him to fly right overtop an American Airlines passenger plane that NBC News reported was "loaded with 110 passengers and a six-person crew".
An air traffic control recording captured Ford asking "Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?"
Ford, 74, was reportedly trying to land his plane on Tuesday afternoon, at the John Wayne Airport, and had gotten cleared for landing on a certain runway by air traffic controllers.
The commercial flight, which was bound for Dallas, safely left the airport shortly after the incident.

Landing a plane on a taxiway is a violation of Federal Aviation Administration safety rules. "The pilot then landed on a taxiway that runs parallel to the runway, overflying a Boeing 737 that was holding short of the runway".
In 2015, Ford told investigators he did not recall the moments before he crashed his vintage plane onto a Los Angeles-area golf course, suffering serious injuries and badly damaging the aircraft. "The FAA is investigating this incident, however the pilot's name was withheld", Ian Gregor, Public Affairs Manager for the FAA Southwest division stated.
He also downed a helicopter in 1999 during a training session. Ford's representatives had no immediate comment. Ford was identified as the pilot involved by NBC News.
