New video has emerged showing just how close Harrison Ford came to a fiery, air disaster when he botched his landing at a California airport and passed just metres above an American Airlines 737, the Daily Mail reports.

Ford's near-miss took place last week when he was landing his small plane at John Wayne Airport in Orange County.

New videos have revealed just how close the 74-year-old came to crashing into a 737 that was taxiing on the tarmac.

It was revealed last week Ford asked air control, "Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?" just seconds after the incident on February 13.

The Federal Aviation Administration said controllers had given Ford clear instructions to land on the runway, as landing on a taxiway is a safety violation.

They say the actor read the instructions back yet he still somehow ended up aiming for the taxiway.
