    The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a plane crash that occurred in Woodstock yesterday.

    A small plane crashed in a corn field at Coatney Hill Farm off County Road yesterday, but it was not discovered until today, according to the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.

    According to the FAA, the Piper PA-24, registration N7333P, left the airport in Woodstock around 3 p.m. yesterday and crashed into a corn field nearby.

    John Elms Jr. of Long Beach, California, is a co-owner of the 1961 fixed-wing single-engine plane, according to the FAA database.  

    Dwayne Gardner, spokesman with the state DEEP, said the pilot notified the FAA, which alerted the state police and the local fire department, which then notified the DEEP.

    The plane sustained substantial damage, but no injuries are reported.

    One person was onboard and was not hurt.
