Harrison Ford reveals how Calista Flockhart has supported him following plane crash

Harrison Ford has opened up about the dramatic plane crash he was involved in earlier this year. The 73-year-old was left seriously injured when his plane crashed in a residential area of LA in March, but he has since recovered with the help of his wife Calista Flockhart.

Speaking in an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres show, Harrison revealed the extent of his injuries, explain: "There were a dislocated right ankle and a shattered pelvis and a broken back and a serious bump on the head with major lacerations."

Despite his injuries, Harrison was flying again less than three months after his accident – something Calista has been supportive of.

"She's fine, she's fine with it actually. She's very supportive," Harrison said. "She knows how much it means to me and she's ok. I fly her all the time."

Harrison was flying a WWII aircraft in March when the engine failed moments after take-off from Santa Monica Airport. The 72-year-old managed to steer the plane away from houses and crashed in a nearby golf course.

While Ellen DeGeneres suggested that he chose that location because "doctors are there usually," Harrison admitted he didn't have much time to think about where would be the best place to try and land the plane.

"I didn't construct such a complete understanding of the situation," he said. "I just landed on the golf course and there were doctors there who probably should have been at work – it was a Friday afternoon I think."

The Star Wars actor, who has had his pilot's licence for 19 years, owns approximately 11 private planes and is an avid flyer. He has previously revealed that he was left with retrograde amnesia following the crash, and didn't remember the five days immediately after the incident.

"I remember the engine stopping, I remember that part very well. And then I remember the tower, I remember their suggestion," Harrison revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live in October. "Their suggestion was that I take the normal route to land and I knew I wasn't going to do that, so I said no.

"And that's the last thing that I remember until five days afterwards actually."
