MARSHALLTOWN (AP) — Iowa authorities say a pilot is uninjured after his plane flipped over during an emergency landing in a soybean field.

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office reported 31-year-old Jason Stone was traveling from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to the Marshalltown Municipal Airport on Monday. Authorities say Stone’s single-engine plane experienced engine problems and he was forced to land. They say the plane got stuck in the mud during the landing and flipped over. Stone was the only occupant of the plane and wasn’t injured.

The Federal Aviation Administration is expected to investigate.
