ROSENDALE, Wisconsin — A 70-year-old Suamico man who crashed a small plane in a Fond du Lac County farm field suffered only minor injuries.
The sheriff's office says pilot Gary Dornfeld told authorities that he lost control of the fixed wing single-engine plane in turbulent air Monday afternoon and tried to make an emergency landing near the town of Rosendale.
The plane ended upside-down and suffered significant damage. Dornfeld got out on his own and was taken to a medical center for treatment of minor injuries.
The sheriff's office, Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash.
