No injuries as small plane makes emergency landing in field

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- No one was injured when a small plane made an emergency landing in a Dane County field.

The Dane County Sheriff's Office says it got a report of a possible plane crash Saturday morning in the town of Berry. The report came in after the plane's pilot indicated he was having engine problems -- then lost contact with air traffic controllers.

The 30-year-old pilot was able to land safely in the field.

The Cessna 172 plane was not damaged, and after the pilot got some fuel, he was able to take off from the field and land safely at Middleton Municipal Airport, about 8 miles away.

He and his passenger were traveling to the Madison area from Montevideo, Minnesota.
