BROWN COUNTY -- No one is hurt after a small plane crashes in Brown County this afternoon.

The plane went down in a field, on the Eastside of Van Ess Road and just north of CTH N.
The pilot, a 60 year-old man from Green Bay, had just minor injuries. He was treated at the scene. He explained to deputies, he lost power at takeoff and attempted to land in a field. On touchdown, the landing gear collapsed and the plane skidded until it stopped.
The plane is a total loss at $25,000, and the FAA will be investigating.
