Harrison Ford was taking off from Santa Monica Airport when his WWII era plane lost power and crashed. Ford was attempting an”immediate return” to the runway when the 1942 Ryan Aeronautical ST3KR he was flying hit the ground just short of the airport at a golf course.
Fords injuries were called serious, but not life-threatening. No one on the ground was injured in what was described as a medium to high-impact incident. Paramedics said the pilot was alert and conscious and had experienced moderate trauma.
