MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 42-year-old Minneapolis woman made an emergency landing Saturday afternoon in a plowed farm field in Hamburg, Minn., after her plane’s instrument panel lost power, authorities said.

The pilot, who was the only one in the plane, suffered no injuries, and the plane sustained no damage, the Carver County Sheriff’s Office said.

Fire crews and police responded to the landing, which happened near the 13000 block of County Road 31 at 2:49 p.m.

A representative from the FAA inspected the plane and released it back to its owner, police said.
