The 72-year-old pilot of a plane that crashed just after 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 4 was located alive in a cornfield located northwest of Highway KD and Highway C.
The original destination of the plane had been the Chicago Executive Airport, but the engine experienced problems on the way there. The plane was unable to land at the nearby Westosha Airport and the pilot opted for the corn field instead, managing to avoid any buildings and people.
The pilot, the only occupant, was not injured although the plane suffered moderate damage. The crash ruined several crops. The Federal Aviation Administration has yet to be contacted but local deputies and rescue crews are investigating the site.
