Pilot Survives Iowa Plane Crash

ATLANTIC, Iowa (AP) -- A small single-engine plane has crashed in western Iowa and the pilot has survived.

Deputy Bill Ayers of the Cass County Sheriff's Office says the Friday afternoon crash near the Atlantic Municipal Airport involved a single-engine biplane used for spraying agriculture fields.

Ayers says the pilot, 24-year-old Christopher Peeler of Rockport, Mo., was able to escape the crash before it caught fire. He walked away from the scene and was later taken to Cass County Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. His condition is unavailable.

Officials are still investigating what caused the crash.

Shenandoah Flight Service owns the plane. An investigator from the Federal Aviation Administration will inspect the scene Saturday.
