Celebrity pilot Harrison Ford was forced to make an emergency landing on a California golf course on Thursday (05Mar15) after experiencing a mechanical issue while flying a two-seater vintage fighter plane.
Reports suggest the actor was taken to hospital after he crashed the World War Two aircraft on Penmar Golf Course, minutes after taking off from nearby Santa Monica Airport.
Sources tell TMZ.com the Star Wars actor suffered multiple gashes to his head and was treated at the golf course by two doctors before paramedics arrived and carried him to an ambulance on a stretcher.
Howard Tabe, an employee at the Penmar Golf Course, tells NBC News, "There was blood all over his face... Two very fine doctors were treating him, taking good care of him. I helped put a blanket under his hip."
Ford, who is in a stable condition in Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, was the only person onboard the plane. National Transportation Safety Board officials are investigating the incident.
Ford's son, Ben Ford, has taken to Twitter.com to update fans on his dad's condition, assuring them the Hollywood star is doing fine. He wrote, "At the hospital. Dad is ok. Battered, but ok! He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man. Thank you all for your thoughts and good vibes for my dad."
This is not the first time Ford has been involved in a plane crash - a six-passenger plane he was piloting took a hard landing in Lincoln, Nebraska, in the summer of 2000 and the actor also crash-landed a helicopter in October, 1999.
Celebrities have taken to social media to offer Ford their support - Melissa Joan Hart, Dane Cook, Josh Gad and filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan were among the friends and fans sending prayers and thoughts on Twitter.com, while Star Trek icon William Shatner, who is still recovering from the death of his friend Leonard Nimoy last week (27Feb15), writes, "Thoughts going out to Harrison Ford for a speedy recovery."
One of the most-loved TV shows from our childhood, 3rd Rock From The Sun, is heading to Netflix. On March 15th, the entire series will be available to stream. It's more than just an Emmy Award-winning show starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a fetus; it's rich with valuable life lessons. Here are just a few of the lessons that have stayed with us throughout the years:
1. Life is not always as cheerful as cereal boxes would have you think.
2. Modesty is for people who are ugly and/or stupid.
3. Adolescence was a strange time for all of us.
4. Taxes are literally impossible.
5. Drinking helps with most problems.
6. Pay inequality is bullsh*t.
7. Our gun laws could probably change a little bit.
8. Breasts have powers.
9. But cleavage is even more powerful.
10. Everyone has their limitations.
11. Everyone loves watching Friends.
And they all do the claps during the theme song.
12. Be careful what you wish for.
13. Aging is the worst. The absolute worst.
14. Unicorns are sacred, man.
15. Five percent is not gratitude.
16. The most important thing we learned was how darn cute JGL is.
Scandal is so good because of its actors, story lines, and formula. Oh, you never noticed the formula? If you pay close attention, there are 10 things that happen in every episode in order to pump up the drama.
1. Rowan Pope gives a killer monologue...maybe two.
2. "Vermont with Fitz" gets mentioned in some way.
3. But in the next breath "standing in the sun" with Jake is mentioned.
4. When Olivia and Fitz have a moment their signature music cue goes off.
5. Huck either tortures someone or talks about his addiction to torturing people.
6. Before Abby would usually come in and start an argument each episode. But lately she just comes in and asks questions to figure out what the heck is going on!
7. Quinn angrily reminds everyone that they're Gladiators and to stay on course because she replaced Harrison.
8. Mellie gets the short end of the stick in some way. Maybe a kid dies, maybe she gets cheated on once again, maybe someone reminds her that her position doesn't matter.
9. Someone yells at Fitz. Maybe it's Olivia, Jake, Cyrus, or Mellie, but be sure someone is going to school him on some mistake he's making.
10. Cryus has some sort of conniption.

Miley Cyrus has poked fun at false pregnancy rumors by posting a mocked up picture of herself undergoing an ultrasound baby scan.
The pop singer was recently hit with a slew of reports suggesting she was expecting a baby with her boyfriend, Arnold Schwarzenegger's son Patrick, and she has now made light of the untrue story by posting a shocking snap on her Instagram.com page.
The picture shows Cyrus' face superimposed onto the body of a pregnant woman undergoing a scan. The doctor's face features an image of her assistant, Cheyne Thomas, and the baby on the screen appears to be made from pizza. Cyrus captioned the picture, "The rumours are true..."

Leonard Nimoy's grandchildren have written an emotional tribute to the man they called "Poppi" following his death last week (ends01Mar15).
The Star Trek icon, who played Spock in the sci-fi franchise, passed away aged 83 after a battle with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and his relatives have expressed their gratitude for the outpouring of support since his death. His grandchildren Morgan Pearson, 36, Alex Schwartz, 30, Dani Schwartz, 25, Maddy Nimoy, 24, Spencer Schwartz, 23, and Jonah Nimoy, 22, have now put together a special tribute to the actor for U.S. magazine People.
In the article, they write, "He wasn't a huge talker, but he always knew what to say and told us countless stories. He spoke the most about life as an actor before Spock than life in Hollywood. He told us how he didn't have a job that lasted longer than a week before Star Trek.
"It makes us feel proud that he was so beloved by his peers. There has been an overwhelming response in the past few days and we all couldn't be more thankful and honored. We will always be able to hear his voice in Star Trek episodes, interviews and on his albums. When we're missing our Poppi, we can go watch him online somewhere. That way he never really leaves us."
After Nimoy's death, tributes flooded in from stars including William Shatner, Tom Selleck, Zachary Quinto, who hailed the veteran performer as the father he never had.
Justin Bieber has assured fans his muscled look in a new magazine photoshoot is all real following a recent row over airbrushing.
The singer threatened legal action after editors of a blog shared pictures which appeared to show him looking less bulky in an advertising campaign for Calvin Klein, and the snaps sparked a debate over whether Bieber's new image had been enhanced.
Men's Health Magazine
The Baby hitmaker has stripped off again for a new Men's Health magazine photoshoot, and he has moved to silence speculation by insisting the images have not been retouched at all. In backstage video taken at the photoshoot, he tells the publication, "You know I'm just getting bigger, man. It's like, my shoulders don't fit in some things... Being on the cover of Men's Health is really, really cool... I love the fact that I got in shape the past two years and I'm finally getting recognition for it. It's not Photoshopped... for all you fools out there saying it's Photoshopped!"
The footage also shows Bieber appearing to lift a weight and posing in front of a boxing bag during the shoot.
