A single-engine plane experienced engine problems Saturday and landed safely in a cornfield near Kansas City International Airport.

Neither of the two people on board was injured, said airport spokesman Joe McBride.

The Kitfox aircraft, which he said was built from a kit, landed about noon near Robinhood Lane and 108th Street, two miles east of the airport.

“Pilot and passenger walked away,” McBride said.

Their names were not available.
