Helicopter makes emergency landing in Fayette County

Posted:

AURORA (KWWL) - A close call this morning for a helicopter pilot who made a crash landing in Fayette County.

Thomas Bruce Jones of Hudson and his grandson were headed to OshKosh, Wisconsin for an air show.  We're told the two-person hommade ultra light helicopter, a Rotoway 162F, had mechanical problems around 8:30 am.

The pilot safely landed the aircraft in a cornfield by 7335 G Ave, just south west of Arlington. Nobody was injured.
