It’s Alright: National Treasure Harrison Ford Is “Battered, but OK” After Plane Crash

We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?


News broke last night that Harrison Ford had crashed on a golf course while piloting a small, vintage plane, but we all lucked out; he’s going to be fine.

Ford’s publicist told the media,

Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which had engine trouble upon takeoff. He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. He was banged up and is in the hospital receiving medical care. The injuries sustained are not life threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery.

In footage from the golf course, you can see that while the front of the plane is a bit crumpled, Ford appears to have made as good a crash landing as you’d expect from Han Solo himself. And like a true movie hero, he made it out with only flesh wounds. Ford’s son also tweeted that his father was doing just fine:

Hopefully, this will be the last Harrison Ford injury we have to report—they’ve been a bit too frequent for our liking—and he’ll get well soon.
