LOS ANGELES (AP) —
, who recently crashed his vintage airplane on a Los Angeles golf course, is returning to the skies — at least with his voice.
National Geographic Studios announced Thursday that Ford will narrate a documentary being released next month called "Living in the Age of Airplanes."
The giant-screen film that was shot from the air over 18 countries gives a history of a century of aviation.
The film premieres April 8 at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum in Washington and two days later will open on IMAX and similar screens.
The announcement comes as Ford, a longtime pilot and aviation enthusiast, is still recovering from the March 5 crash-landing of a World War II era plane whose engine failed shortly after takeoff.
