(People) Harrison Ford was involved in an incident with a passenger plane on Monday as he was landing his private aircraft.

Ford, 74, reportedly flew dangerously close to a taxiing passenger plane after mistakenly landing in a taxiway instead of the runway he was cleared for, according to NBC News. A spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration confirmed to PEOPLE that an incident took place Tuesday afternoon involving an Aviat Husky aircraft that landed “on a taxiway that runs parallel to the runway,” though the agency did not identify the people involved due to policy.

The actor was reportedly piloting his single-engine plane when tower control gave him the go-ahead to land at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California. But when the actor instead maneuvered toward a taxiway, his plane flew over an American Airlines departing flight with 110 passengers on board and a six-person crew. The Dallas-bound 737 aircraft was reportedly able to safely take off minutes after the incident.
