Harrison Ford Injured After Crashing Small Vintage Military Plane

Harrison Ford crash landed at Penmar Golf Course in Venice, Calif. Thursday afternoon and is reportedly in moderate to serious condition. According to Ian Gregor of the Federal Aviation Administration, the crash happened just after takeoff. He was flying out of nearby Santa Monica Airport, which is minutes from Penmar. The 72-year-old Ford was seen conscious and breathing when taken to the hospital.  Ford, an aviation enthusiast, was solo flying a Ryan PT-22 Recruit, a World War II plane used to train pilots back in the '40s. It is currently unclear what went wrong with the single-engine plane. RELATED: See photos of the 2014 AeroMobil 3.0 Prototype This is not the first time Ford has crashed.
