Harrison Ford Injured & Hospitalised After His Plane Crash Lands

The actor Harrison Ford was injured on Thursday when a single-engine, World War II-era training plane he was piloting crashed onto a golf course in Venice, Calif., shortly after takeoff from Santa Monica Airport.

Ben Ford, Mr. Ford’s son, said his father was “battered, but ok” in a tweet he said was sent from the hospital.

“He is every bit the man you would think he is,” Mr. Ford said of his father, who is 72. “He is an incredibly strong man.”

Mr. Ford’s plane had engine trouble upon takeoff and he had to make an emergency landing, said his publicist, Ina Treciokas. He was “banged up” but walked away from the accident, she said.

Ian Gregor of the Federal Aviation Administration said that Mr. Ford’s plane crashed shortly after takeoff from Santa Monica Airport, NBC reported.

The police said that the airport was less than four miles from the scene of the crash and that the aircraft was a plane used to train pilots during World War II.

A police spokeswoman said that mechanical failure might have been to blame for the crash but that further investigation was required.

Television footage showed what was reported to be Mr. Ford’s plane lying on its belly on a golf green fringed by leafy trees, its nose crumpled but no flame or smoke visible.

“It was more or less a hard landing,” he said. “Luckily, I was with another aviation professional and neither of us was hurt — and both of us are still flying.”
