Emergency Landing in Cornfield Leaves Father and Son Unharmed
Authorities are investigating engine
problems that sent a small plane down in a Nebraska cornfield.
The emergency landing happened Friday
evening around 6 p.m. north of Eustis, midway between Kearney and North Platte.
Two men were in the plane at the time and both walked away without injuries.
Dawson County Sheriff Gary Rieber said
the single-engine 1978 Cessna R182 was flying from Pontiac, Mich., to Denver
when the accident happened. The plane had made a stop in Grand
Island and then developed engine problems shortly after takeoff.
Authorities have said the two men on the plane were a
father and son from Colorado, but have not released any names.
