WAKEMAN A small plane made an emergency landing in an open field Sunday night.
A retired military pilot landed the two-person plane in a Wakeman field near U.S. 20 and Lorain County Line Road 2 after having some mechanical issues, said Sgt. Anthony DeChoudens of the state Highway Patrol's Norwalk post.
Pilot Larry Diemand guessed the problem had to do with the carburetor, DeChoudens said, but he is still trying to determine the exact difficulty.
Neither Diemand, 60, of Chagrin Falls, nor his passenger, Victor Pawlak, 65, of Parma, were injured. They were flying from Greenwood, S.C. to the Lorain County Airport where the men keep the plane.
