SAXEVILLE - No one was injured when an airplane carrying two people was forced to make an emergency landing in a farm field Sunday night in the town of Saxeville.

The pilot of the plane called 911 to report that the aircraft was having mechanical issues and would have to make an emergency landing. With the help of GPS tracking, the pilot was able to land the plane safely and first responders arrived shortly after, the release said.
