A report on AVweb notes that a carburetor malfunction led to the loss of engine power in the Ryan PT-22 flown by Harrison Ford when he made a forced landing in March. The NTSB also cited faulty shoulder harness hardware that contributed to Ford’s injuries. The actor and pilot was hospitalized after the accident, which occurred March 5 after taking off from Santa Monica Airport. Shortly after departing Runway 21, he reported mechanical problems to ATC and asked to turn back. He made a left turn back to the field, but struck a tree and the Ryan landed on its belly on a golf course, sustaining heavy damage.
