Harrison Ford flying again following crash

HARRISON Ford is flying again following his crash in March. 

Five months on from his plane accident when he crash-landed on a golf course in Los Angeles - due to engine failure related to a loose part - the 72-year-old actor's wife Calista Flockhart has revealed her husband still loves his aviation hobby and although it was "really hard" she supports his decision "100 percent" to get back to what he loves most.

She said: "He loves it, so I love it, and I support him 100 percent." 

However, it was a "scary time" for Calista and the 'Star Wars' star's son Liam Flockhart and also Harrison's children from his previous marriages with Melissa Mathison Georgia Ford and Malcolm Ford and Willard Ford and Ben Ford with Mary Marquardt. 

The TV actress told People magazine: "It was a really hard, scary time for our family. I think it just makes you realise, once again, that life can turn on a dime. We just have to appreciate every second we're here, because you never know."

The accident hasn't stopped Harrison's wife from being a passenger in his aircraft and she confirmed that she goes along on his journeys, but she doesn't fly herself.

She added: "I don't fly. I'm the passenger in the plane."
