Two people have been injured in what the Federal Aviation Administration is calling a “hard landing” of a small plane in a field north of Taylor.

The conditions of the two passengers were not immediately available.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, the single engine Cessna 172 landed in a field near Circleville General Store north of Taylor at about 4 p.m. Tuesday and then flipped. 

A female student pilot and a male flight instructor took off from Taylor and were practicing stalls when they had to make an emergency landing, DPS Trooper Robbie Barrera said.

The FAA will investigate the incident, but was not classifying it as a crash at this time, Barrera said. The scene is being secured by DPS and the Williamson County sheriff’s office for FAA investigators that are expected Wednesday, Barrera said.
