The pilot of a fixed-wing aircraft was hospitalized following a crash landing in Greeley County around 10:38 a.m. on Friday.
A. B. Smith, 52, Sharon Springs, was taken to Greeley County Hospital following the crash landing about 13.1 miles north of the Kansas Highway 27 and Kansas Highway 96 junction in Tribune, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol.
A KHP report said Smith was flying the single-engine 1971 Cessna plane and lost control of the plane when banking to turn.
Smith was able to straighten out, and landed in a cornfield with the plane, coming to rest on its landing gear in an upright position, according to the KHP.
Hospital at Greeley County Hospital did not release information about Smith's condition late Friday.
Smith was wearing a safety restraint, the KHP also said.
