Emergency Landing in Cornfield Leaves Father and Son Unharmed

Posted: Updated:

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.
