The pilot and co-pilot of the small aircraft that force landed in a cornfield north of Eustis Friday night were a father and son, according to the Dawson County Sheriff Gary Rieber. 

The single-engine Cessna aircraft was bound from Pontiac, Michigan to Denver, Colorado. Rieber said the plane stopped in Grand Island Friday. After taking off again, the plane developed engine troubles, prompting the force landing, Rieber said.

Authorities from Frontier County confirmed Friday night that neither man was injured. The plane landed in a cornfield near the intersection of county roads 750 and 419.

The plane, a 1978 Cessna R182, suffered minor wing damage and the front landing gear was torn off during the landing, according to the Nebraska State Patrol.
