WASHINGTON COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) – A small plane made an emergency landing in a field near the Hartford Municipal Airport Wednesday evening.
According to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, the plane made the landing near Highway 60 and Kettle Moraine Road around 6 p.m.
Authorities responded to the scene and found the pilot walking near the road. He told emergency crews he was the only person in the plane and had sustained a minor injury. The pilot, who is from the Town of West Bend, says he was flying from Kalamazoo, Michigan and was preparing to land at the airport when his plane engine lost power. He believed the failure was due to ice build-up on the landing gear mechanics.
The Washington County Sheriff's Office reports the plane suffered substantial damage.
The Milwaukee Aviation Agency is conducting an investigation into the incident.
