CENTERBURG — A Piper Tomahawk plane landed in a cornfield near Chapman Memorial Field on Wednesday afternoon.

The two passengers were uninjured.

According to the pilot, the guage indicated there was fuel; however, the tank ran dry and the pilot was forced to land before arriving at the air field.

The Central Ohio Joint Fire District responded to the downed plane.

Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration are currently on the scene.
