On Thursday afternoon, actor and aviation enthusiast Harrison Ford crashed his WWII-era single-engine plane in Califiornia’s Penmar Golf Course during an emergency landing maneuver. According to eyewitnesses interviewed by EW, Ford—who is in stable condition and not seriously injured—was able to execute a “masterful” landing, not even hitting any trees in the area. Now, the first video footage from the crash is beginning to surface. 

The Associated Press has published a compilation of amateur cell phone footage from golfers on the course who spotted the troubled aircraft in its descent to the course. Watch it below:

In a statement to EW on Thursday, a rep for Ford said the actor is expected to make a “full recovery.” “Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which had engine trouble upon take off,” his rep wrote. “He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. He was banged up and is in the hospital receiving medical care. The injuries sustained are not life threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery.”
