GARDNER, Kansas (AP) – The pilot of a small home-built aircraft was walking around uninjured after making an emergency landing in an eastern Kansas field.

The pilot reported losing oil pressure before landing in a field five miles north of New Century Airport outside Gardner, where it had taken off minutes earlier on Monday morning.

The Long-EZ home-built plane landed about 9:50 a.m. The pilot was the only person aboard the small plane.
