Our favorite flyboy does it again, this time with a passenger jet

Harrison Ford was involved in an incident involving a passenger jet, sources told ABC News.

The actor, who is also a private pilot, was landing a plane at John Wayne Airport in Orange County when he flew over an American Airlines 737 aircraft bound for Dallas - Ft. Worth.

There were no injuries and the FAA is currently investigating the situation.

Ford's publicist told ABC News he had no official statement about the incident.

And another article on the same incident, this one is more sarcastic:

Harrison Ford has more piloting problems

Harrison Ford had another incident while piloting his small airplane on Monday, during which nearly flew over a bigger plane at a Southern California airport and landed where he wasn’t supposed to.

Maybe Han Solo is getting too old for this stuff.

The larger plane departed with no problems for Dallas just a few minutes after the incident.

Ford, 74, reportedly asked air traffic controllers "Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?"

Uh …

He was then told he landed on a taxiway rather than the runway. Which is a violation of Federal Aviation Administration safety rules.
