Wellsville — A Baldwin man was not injured this morning after he landed a single-engine, fixed-wing plane in a field west of Wellsville after the engine lost power.
According to a Kansas Highway Patrol report, Michael Dann, 50, was flying from Ottawa to Gardner in the 1949 Luscombe plane.
At 11 a.m., he heard a loud bang from the engine and then a grinding noise just before the plane lost power. Dann then landed the plane in a field near 4353 Utah Road in Franklin County.
On the ground, the plane continued south across a driveway and struck a line of trees before coming to rest in a field, according to the report.
