Harrison Ford ‘Recovering Remarkably’ After Plane Crash, Says Producer

Harrison Ford is on the road to recovery, according to famed producer Frank Marshall, who spoke to Variety at the New York premiere of his latest project “Sinatra: All or Nothing at All” on Tuesday. Marshall reported that his “Indiana Jones” colleague and close friend has left the UCLA Medical Center and is now recuperating from the March 5 plane crash.

“Harrison is at home (in Los Angeles) and he’s up and about,” Marshall said. “I talked to him yesterday and he’s doing really well. He’s pretty banged up, but he’s recovering remarkably. He wants to play tennis.”

Ford, 72, sustained serious injuries and broken bones after the engine of a small plane he was piloting from Santa Monica Airport cut out and crash-landed at Penmar Golf Course in Venice, California. Fortunately, the “Star Wars” actor’s exceptional flying skills helped to save his life and prevented others from harm.

“That’s the thing you would expect him to do in a movie, but he did it in real life!” exclaimed Marshall. “He’s a really good pilot. I’ve talked to a lot of pilots who said that was a hell of a landing and he did everything correct in that situation. He made an incredible landing, to his credit. He is, after all, Indiana Jones.”
