Entry Description

Richmond – Shortly after 3 p.m. today the Pendleton Post was notified of a small plane that went down in a field south east of the Richmond Municipal Airport, in the area of State Road 122.  Troopers arrived to find a single engine Piper 235 in a corn field just south of 4405 east State Road 122. 

After speaking with the pilot, John Lewis, age 26 of Camden Ohio, troopers discovered the plane had just fueled up at the Richmond Airport and taken off when it lost power.  Preliminary investigation revealed the pilot was attempting to switch to the fuel tank that was full when the plane lost power and was forced to land in the corn field.

Neither the pilot nor any of his three passengers were injured.  He told troopers he was about twenty minutes away from his destination when the incident occurred. The FAA office in Indianapolis was notified and investigators had arrived at the scene this evening to conduct an investigation into the incident.

Any further questions will need to be directed to the FAA.
