Harrison Ford had to make an emergency plane landing after his plane experienced wind turbulence, it has been learned. According to reports, the actor was piloting a six-passenger Beechcraft Bonanza from Fort Wayne, Ind., to Lincoln, Neb., when shifting winds forced the actor to make an unexpected landing at the Lincoln Municipal Airport on Sunday night.

One other unidentified passenger was on board. Neither Ford nor the other individual was injured.

An official from the Federal Aviation Administration told The Associated Press that the actor had called in about the wind shear while he was going in for the landing, which caused minor damage to the plane.

No word yet from Ford’s camp regarding the accident.

Ford will next be seen on the big screen opposite Michelle Pfeiffer in "What Lies Beneath," opening in July.
