A pilot called Fort Wayne Police on Tuesday afternoon to report that he’d landed his small plane in a field but no one was injured.

Police received a call at around 3 p.m. of an aircraft that was down at Till and Bethel roads near Lima Road, about 4 miles from Smith Field. No fire erupted and the plane landed on its wheels, according to scanner traffic.

The Federal Aviation Administration is expected to investigate what caused the plane to go down.
