Sunday morning at approximately 11:39 a.m., Kendall County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the 9000 Block of Millbrook Road, just north of Route 71, for a report of a small airplane crash.
Contact was made upon arrival with the pilot, Kurt Englemann, who was uninjured. Englemann was the sole occupant of the plane.
Englemann was flying from Wisconsin. He told Kendall County Sheriff's deputies that his plane lost power, prompting him to attempt a landing in a field.
Representatives from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) have been notified, and will complete an investigation.
