News reported Monday afternoon actor Harrison Ford was involved in a potentially serious plane incident at a California airport as he was piloting his private, single-engine plane.

While this story is still now developing, we do know that Ford was aware of the plane underneath him, as he allegedly asked the air traffic controllers, "was that airliner meant to be underneath me?"

Ford, 74, was reportedly trying to land his plane on Tuesday afternoon, at the John Wayne Airport, and had gotten cleared for landing on a certain runway by air traffic controllers.

Landing a plane on a taxiway is a violation of Federal Aviation Administration safety rules.

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.
