In February Harrison Ford, piloting his plane, landed on a taxiway instead of a runway and just missed coming down on top of an American Airlines Boeing 737 bound for Dallas.
In air traffic control audio of the incident he calls himself a schmuck.
Shockingly he “retains his pilot’s certificate without restriction” after the FAA determined “no administrative or enforcement action was warranted.” However he will “undergo voluntary ‘airman counseling’.”
Implausibly, “Ford’s attorney also told news organizations that Ford didn’t receive special treatment because he is a celebrity.” The actor has crashed and run off the runway before, but he gets to keep flying.
Celebrities it seems very much get to fly like the political class.
