74 year old Harrison Ford was trying to land on a taxiway, not a runway, and there happened to be a 737 coming onto the taxiway at that moment.

Harrison Ford was landing his single engine Aviat Husky:

.... at John Wayne Airport in Orange County when he flew over an American Airlines 737 aircraft bound for Dallas - Ft. Worth.

Ford was directed by air traffic control to land on Runway 20L. The official FAA report indicates the pilot correctly read back the clearance but instead landed on a taxiway beside the runway. Ford’s plane then flew over the 737 that was stopped just outside the runway.

There do not seem to be any photos, but there aren't any doubts the FAA is going to suspend or pull his license.
