Calling the crash "#veryscary," Ford's son with first wife Mary Marquardt wrote, "Thank you for all your thoughts and good vibes for my dad."

As reported, 72-year-old Ford's engines failed shortly after his 2 p.m. takeoff from Santa Monica airport and he crash landed at Venice's Penmar golf course.

A rep for the L.A. City Fire Department said he suffered "moderate trauma" but was "conscious and breathing" when transported to the hospital.
