This time the location was Venice, not a desolate village in India, as Ford guided his airplane into a crash landing on Thursday afternoon.

Moments before the crash, in audio of his conversation with air traffic control, a calm and collected Ford can be heard asking for an emergency landing because his engine had failed.
