Wednesday evening saw a plane crash into a cow pasture just after 7 pm in Chaffee County. Witnesses noticed the plane losing altitude before its subsequent crash landing in the field.

Emergency personal rushed to the scene and found the pilot alive and uninjured, although the aircraft, a single-engine Cessna, had sustained significant damage. From initial findings, it appears that the plane had lost engine power and the pilot was attempting to land the craft at an airport but was forced to crash land before reaching his destination.

The plane was previously used as a skydive aircraft in Moab, Utah but had been sold as was being flown to the new owners. The pilot has not been identified at this point. FAA will be investigating the incident.
