Small plane makes emergency landing near Winterset

Posted:

WINTERSET (AP) -- Crews have found a single-engine plane that made an emergency landing in a soybean field just north of Winterset.

Authorities say the pilot was trying to land on Highway 169 Saturday morning when the plane disappeared from radar displays.

Madison County Sheriff Craig Busch says he was in contact with the pilot by radio before the landing. He says no one was injured.

Emergency crews had trouble finding the plane after the landing. Eventually it was located in the field about 10 miles north of Winterset.

It was not immediately clear how many people were aboard the plane.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the aircraft is a 1988 single-engine A36 Beech.
