Initial reports say that it was a mechanical malfunction. They just don't make X-Wings like they used to.

According to the news reports I've seen, the actions he took by putting the plane down on the golf course instead of in a suburban neighborhood saved many lives. So he must be a pretty decent pilot at least.

He did all he could.

-----------------------------

Beyond joy-riding in the skies, Ford also employs his skills as a pilot, acquired in his mid-50s, to help in search-and-rescue efforts.

Here are a few of his closer brushes, some more dramatic than others, as well as heroic moments:

1. A SCAR FOR SPEEDING

The scar on his face that lends him a rakish look was earned, he’s said, in “a mundane way.” In 1964, he was speeding to a job at a department store in Orange County, Calif., when his car veered off the road and into a telephone pole as he fumbled for his seatbelt.

2. HELICOPTER CRASH

In 1999, Ford crash-landed his helicopter during a training flight in which he and an instructor were practicing auto rotations in Ventura County, northwest of Los Angeles. Ford and the instructor were unhurt.

3. HARRISON FORD, RESCUE RANGER

– He used his helicopter in 2000 to pluck an Idaho Falls, Idaho, hiker off 11,106-foot Table Mountain in Teton County, Wyoming, and fly her to a hospital. One year later, Ford and another searcher helped find a missing Boy Scout in a forest south of Yellowstone National Park. “Boy, you sure must have earned a merit badge for this one,” Ford told the cold and hungry teenager after whisking him to safety by chopper.

4. A HAIR-RAISING LANDING

Ford was at the helm of a Beechcraft Bonanza in 2000 when wind shear forced him to make an emergency landing at Lincoln Municipal Airport in Nebraska. Ford and his passenger were uninjured when the plane clipped the runway and its wing tips were damaged, officials said.

5. THE PAINS OF STARDOM

Ford, who takes pride in doing his own stunt work, reportedly injured his back in 1983 while making Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and damaged ligaments in his leg during production of the 1993 film The Fugitive. Last year, he was filming Star Wars: Episode VII in a studio outside London when a door of Solo’s Millennium Falcon spacecraft fell and broke the actor’s leg, requiring surgery on it. He recovered and returned to complete his work on the movie.

He also made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.
