Yesterday was sure a strange day regarding planes. First a Delta flight coming in from Atlanta, Georgia skidded off a runway at LAGuardia airport nearly going into the frigid waters of Flushing Bay.  The day was stormy in New York City with a snowstorm dumping 8 inches in the region.  Despite this, air traffic control gave the clear for Delta Flight 1086 to land.  As it landed, there was no traction and the plane began to slide for over 20 seconds. People onboard were scared and not sure what would happen next.  The plane veered off the runway and hit a fence adjacent to the Flushing Bay.  The plane was literally inches from the waters!  Over 20 passengers were injured, nothing seriously.  Giants tight end Larry Donnell was onboard.  He was coming to New York to sign and one-year contract with the NFL team. An investigation is ongoing to see why the plane skidded off the runway. Port authority officials claim that the runway was plowed and that planes landed prior to Delta Flight 1086 without issue.

If that is not enough drama with planes, actor Harrison Ford known for his role as the adventurous “Indiana Jones” and for playing a “warrior” president in, “Airforce One” was involved in a plane crash himself.

However, he was the one flying the plane. Harrison, 72 is a pilot and took his small vintage plane for a ride when he had trouble with the engine and landed on a golf course in Venice, California. He was taken to the hospital with broken bones and multiple gashes on his head.  Harrison is expected to survive.
