While the FAA was unable to confirm that Ford was in the airplane, Ian Gregor, the public affairs manager of the FAA's Pacific Division, said that the pilot was transported to the hospital. Multiple media reports have identified the pilot as Ford, an avid aviator who has done terrific work advocating for the aviation industry. Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott told The Los Angeles Times that Ford suffered fair to moderate injuries. Ford's son later wrote on his Twitter that his dad was "battered, but ok!" We wish him a speedy recovery.
