SANDWICH, Ill. (AP) - Authorities say one person is injured after a small home built airplane en route from St. Louis had to make an emergency landing in an unincorporated area outside Chicago.
The (Aurora) Beacon News reports that Kendall County sheriff's police officers were called to the scene just before 11 a.m. Sunday.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Tony Molinaro says the light sport aircraft left a small airport in St. Louis and the pilot reported engine trouble in Illinois. Emergency crews found the plane had made an emergency landing in a field not far from Sandwich.
Both people aboard were taken to a local hospital. One was treated for minor injuries and the other was evaluated.
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.
BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan (AP) - Kyrgyzstan's emergencies minister says the bodies of two American crew members have been found after a U.S. military refueling plane crashed in rugged mountains, while the search for the third crew member continues.
The minister told The Associated Press that Kyrgyz search teams found the two fragmented bodies this morning. They have not yet been identified.
The KC-135 crashed on yesterday about 100 miles west of the air base that the U.S. operates in the Central Asian nation to support military operations in Afghanistan.
Officials at the U.S. Transit Center at Manas have released no information yet on the cause of the crash.
