Pilot unhurt in plane crash in eastern Wisconsin

Posted:

TOWN OF WILSON, Wis. (AP) -- A pilot has survived an emergency plane landing in eastern Wisconsin after his engine lost power.

The Federal Aviation Administration notified the Sheboygan County sheriff's office just after 11:30 a.m. Sunday that a plane had crashed in southern Sheboygan County.

Shortly afterward, the pilot, identified as a man from Cleveland, Wisconsin, called to say his Mooney airplane had lost engine power and he had to make an emergency landing in a farm field in the Town of Wilson.

Deputies and emergency responders went to the scene. The man was not hurt, and his plane was intact with no fuel leakage.

The FAA is investigating.
