Harrison Ford, 77, pictured for the first time since he wrongly crossed a runway

Harrison Ford has been pictured out for the first time since getting himself trouble again for flying his plane, after mishearing instructions just after landing at a California airport.

The Star Wars actor was seen looking concerned as he checked his phone as he arrived at Santa Monica airport on Friday. 

Ford, 77, was told to hold short of the runway at Hawthorne Airport in California last Friday because another aircraft was practicing touch-and-go landings there, but he still crossed and taxied to the other end, much to the alarm of the tower operator.

After landing in the airport, audio obtained by TMZ revealed the tower operator told the star: 'Can you hold short on runway. Traffic on the runway.'

However, Ford accelerated onto the runway and began crossing, with the operator angrily saying the veteran pilot had ignored his instructions.

Ford profusely apologized and said he thought he was told he had been cleared to cross the runway.

There was no danger of the aircraft crashing because the other plane was 3,600 feet away from Ford's when it hit the runway and was up in the air again long before reaching the area where the actor was. 

However, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is looking into the incident. 

A spokesperson for the actor said: 'Mr. Ford crossed the airport's only runway in his aircraft after he misheard a radio instruction from ATC.

'He immediately acknowledged the mistake and apologized to ATC for the error. The purpose of the flight was to maintain currency and proficiency of the aircraft.'

The Blade Runner actor was getting his pilot's license updated so he could take part in more relief efforts amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The incident comes five years after Ford broke his pelvis and ankle when his World-War II-era ST3KR aircraft suffered engine failure and made an emergency landing on a Santa Monica golf course in March 2015.

After plunging 3,000ft and hitting a tree on the way down, Ford was rushed from the scene bleeding heavily from a head wound. 

But Ford was praised for keeping his cool and managing to glide his airplane into the crash landing. 

Moments before the crash, in audio of his conversation with air traffic control, an unemotional Ford was heard asking for an emergency landing because his engine had failed. Ford later insisted his brush with death wouldn't keep him away from the cockpit. 

He said: 'It was one time - and I didn't crash, the plane crashed. I didn't get right out of it, but I'm fine now, it took a while.'

Asked if it had put him off flying, he added: 'No, it's a big part of who I am.'

In February 2017, Ford mistakenly landed on the taxiway at John Wayne Airport, narrowly missing a Boeing 737 full of passengers. 

 Ford had been instructed to land on runway 20-L at the airport in Orange County, California.

But the then-74-year-old mistakenly aimed for a taxiway, just passing over an American Airlines 737 loaded with more than 100 passengers and a six-person crew.

'Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?' he asked Air Control.

When told he was on a taxiway, Ford immediately acknowledged his error, saying on the radio, 'I'm the schmuck.'

The Federal Aviation Administration said that controllers had given Ford clear instructions to land on the runway, as landing on a taxiway is a safety violation. They say the actor read the instructions back yet still somehow ended up aiming for the taxiway.
