MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A small plane flying from Minot to Dickinson had to make an emergency landing in a farm field after the engine failed.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol said 66-year-old Gordon Pavlicek was flying the 1971 Piper Cherokee 140 about 5:30 p.m. Saturday when he had to land in the Ward County field.

Pavlicek was not injured and the plane suffered just mechanical damage.
