    [rquoter] 72-year-old Ford is a longtime aviator -- piloting planes and helicopters -- and has crashed multiple times in the past. [/rquoter]


    I hope he's OK.

    Is it normal for a pilot to crash "multiple times"?

    "Get off my plane!" would not fit since he was the only occupant.

    Reports are that he's okay and only sustained gashes of some sort.

    Actor Harrison Ford was seriously injured Thursday when a vintage World War II training plane he was piloting crash landed on a Mar Vista, California, golf course.

    The actor was stabilized and taken to a local hospital. Sources said he sustained cuts to his head. There was no word on other injuries or what caused the plane to crash. It appeared he was flying solo.

    His injuries were originally described as "critical," but sources emphasized they are better characterized as serious, including lacerations to the head and possible fractures.

    Howard Tabe, an employee at the Penmar Golf Course, said 'There was blood all over his face ... Two very fine doctors were treating him, taking good care of him. I helped put a blanket under his hip."

    The plane crashed on the golf course just west of the airport shortly after takeoff from the Santa Monica Airport, according to Ian Gregor of the Federal Aviation Administration, NBC Los Angeles reported.

    An avid flyer of both planes and helicopters, Ford was in a bad crash of a Bell chopper in 1999 Santa Clara, Calif. In 2008, he told National Geographic, "Well, there was a mechanical failure while we were practicing power recovery autorotations. It was more or less a hard landing. Luckily, I was with another aviation professional and neither of us was hurt—and both of us are still flying."

    It looked like some vintage/antique plane. I would think your chances of getting in a plane crash would drastically increase in one of those. Hope he makes it :(

    I think he sustained many of those in his younger days.

    Most rich guys think they are ace pilots. Looks like he destroyed a warbird now. Thanks for crashing our history dude.

    This one time in the 90's he survived a horrific crash involving a bus and a train. I hope Docta Jones okay.
