EL DORADO, Kansas — The Kansas Highway Patrol says a pilot and his passenger escaped injury when a small, twin-engine plane made a crash landing near an airport.

The incident happened shortly before 11 a.m. Wednesday at the El Dorado Airport in Butler County.

Authorities say the pilot was doing touch-and-go takeoffs and landings when the plane lost power in one engine. The 1966 Cessna 310K then landed hard in a field near the airport.
