On August 17, 2012, about 1300 central daylight time, a Cessna A150L, N6006J, impacted a corn field 13 miles, north of Tribune, Kansas. The pilot, the sole occupant on board, was seriously injured. The airplane was substantially damaged. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91 as a personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions (VMC) prevailed at the time of the accident, and no flight plan had been filed. The local flight originated from Tribune Municipal Airport (K5K2) about 1200.

The pilot reportedly told rescuers that he lost control while in a bank, recovered, and impacted terrain.

 A western Kansas man is injured after crashing his fixed-wing airplane into a Greeley County cornfield. 

The Garden City Telegram reports 52-year-old A.B. Smith of Sharon Springs was flying the single-engine Cessna at 10:38 a.m. Friday when he lost control of the plane when banking to turn.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says Smith was able to straighten out the plane and crash landed in a field near Tribune. It came to rest on its landing gear in an upright position.

Smith was taken to Greeley County Hospital, which declined to release information about his condition late Friday. A woman at the hospital told The Associated Press on Saturday he was transferred to a different hospital soon after he arrived, but she didn't have information on where he was taken.
