Harrison Ford Credited for His Handling of Plane Crash

The movie star crashed his WWII-era plane on a golf course.

Ford, 72, remained hospitalized Saturday. His publicist, Ina Treciokas, has described the actor’s injuries as non-life-threatening.

"He had these fairways in front of him, and he did his best to keep the airplane flying, he didn't stall it out," said Ganyard. "It looks like he did a really good job under the circumstances."

Andrew Varenhorst, who witnessed the crash, said planes leaving Santa Monica Municipal Airport - where Ford took off from Thursday - have crashed into nearby homes before.

"Aiming for the golf course is the only open space out here, pretty much aside from the beach," he said.

"You have to pick the best spots that there are, and this was apparently the best spot," Jones said of the golf course.
