Harrison Ford was unhurt after turbulence forced the "Air Force One" star to make an emergency landing in his private plane Sunday in Nebraska. According to reports, the 57-year-old actor was piloting a six-passenger Beechcraft Bonanza from Fort Wayne, Ind., to Lincoln, Neb., when shifting winds forced the actor to make an unscheduled touchdown at the Lincoln Municipal Airport.

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.

Air scares are nothing new to Ford. Last October, he survived a helicopter crash in California. And on film, he crash-landed with Anne Heche in "Six Days, Seven Nights" and battled airborne terrorists in "Air Force One."

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