1974 Piper Arrow sets down in southern Vigo County field

A single engine aircraft had to make an emergency landing in a southern Vigo County corn field Thursday afternoon just after 3p.m.

The plane set down just south of the US Federal Prison near SR63 and Ryman Drive.

The red 1974 Piper Arrow was piloted by Lee Schmalz of Kaukaune, WI.

He and his passenger Joe Kobuffen were en-route from Wisconsin to Mississippi when the aircraft encountered complete engine failure.

Neither of the occupants were injured and the plane remained upright.
