Concord Township, Michigan -  An airplane was found in a field Wednesday afternoon in Jackson County.

A single-person prop plane made an emergency landing in a field near the intersection of N. Concord Road and Elm Row Road, Jackson County Undersheriff Chris Kuhl said. The Concord Township Fire Chief had multiple calls from citizens about the plane, and a deputy went to investigate around 1:30 p.m., Feb. 5, Kuhl said.

The Kitfox IV-1200 experimental aircraft is registered to a Grass Lake resident, Kuhl said. The pilot told police he was forced to land in the field when the plane had a mechanical issue. The pilot was the only occupant, Kuhl said.

He was not injured and the plane did not appear to have significant damage, Kuhl said.

The owner will remove the plane from the field, Kuhl said. The landowner, Jackson Airport air traffic controllers and the Federal Aviation Administration were notified, he said.
