Harrison Ford Continues to Heal Following Plane Crash

 Actor Harrison Ford remains hospitalized, continuing to heal after his World War II-era plane crashed on a California golf course, as investigators try to uncover the cause of the accident.
National Transportation Safety Board investigator Patrick Jones said authorities hope to speak to Ford, 72, about the Thursday incident. There’s no indication the plane’s fuel was bad, investigators said.
Ford’s wife, Calista Flockhart, visited him at the hospital Sunday. His son Ben also shared updates about his father’s status online over the weekend, thanking fans for their concern and saying Ford has “the best care possible.” The tweet was later deleted.

Ford reported engine trouble shortly after  taking  off from the  Santa Monica Airport on Thursday  and asked  for  an immediate return , Jones  said . The  tower then reported that the plane  came  up short  of the runway , according  to air traffic controller  transmissions  from LiveATC.net.

ABC News aviation consultant John Nance believes  the  golf  course's conditions  contributed  to Ford's injuries .
"The  airplane Harrison  was flying  was an old  model . It  was  built for  slow  speed  and  maneuverability . I think  what  happened in this  instance is  the wheels  dug into  the wet  ground  and  that made the  aircraft stop too  quickly ," Nance  said .

A very speedy  recover  Harrison  Ford ... from the PICs.
