Small plane makes emergency landing near Ashland

Authorities say a twin-engine prop plane has made an emergency landing in a field in central Missouri.

Southern Boone County Fire Protection District Lieutenant Corey Sapp says no one was injured when the plane landed in a soybean field near Ashland on Thursday afternoon.

The Columbia Tribune reports that Federal Aviation Administration records show the plane is registered to Alelco Incorporated of New Bloomfield. The company's website says it designs, installs and maintains "Electrical, Cathodic Protection and Instrumentation systems" for the water tank industry.
