Landing a plane on a taxiway is a violation of Federal Aviation Administration safety rules. Instead, his single-engine Aviat Husky landed on a taxiway that sits parallel to the runway and flew above a Boeing 737 on the ground. The mishap could result in anything from a simple warning to suspension of Ford's pilot license, the news agency reported.

In 1999, Ford and a flight instructor were in a helicopter that crashed north of Los Angeles, according to a Los Angeles Times report at the time. "The FAA is investigating this incident", the FAA said in a statement to Variety.
