The crash occurred at 2:24 p.m. on Thursday at Penmar Golf Course, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott.
The vintage World War II fighter jet (right) was only holding 72 year old Ford at the time when he experienced an engine failure.
An employee of the golf course where the crash occurred told NBC News, “There was blood all over his face. Two very fine doctors were treating him, taking good care of him.”
At this time only a head injury is being reported, however he is in stable condition.
This isn’t exactly the first time Ford has been in this situation. This is his third time crashing an aircraft. In October of 1999 Ford crashed a helicopter, and in the Summer of 2000 he crashed a small 6-person aircraft.
