A pilot is okay after his single-engine plane flipped over in a Montgomery County cornfield during an emergency landing less than a mile from a rural airstrip.
Montgomery County Sheriff’s Investigator Joseph Kilmartin told the Daily Gazette of Schenectady that the aircraft took off from Hiserts Airpark in the town of Palatine just after 5 p.m. Wednesday.
The engine cut out, and the pilot brought the plane down.
Kilmartin said the pilot wasn’t significantly injured and there were no passengers. He didn’t release the pilot’s name.
A Federal Aviation Administration investigation is pending.
