A Black Rock man escaped serious injury when the airplane he was flying crashed Monday afternoon at Wilson Flying Service, off Highway 34 near O'Kean and the Lawrence and Greene County line.

Anthony Alls, 29, was taking off from the flying service's airstrip when the plane went down. He apparently realized there was a problem, as he was in the process of dumping his load, 2,650 pounds of fertilizer, when he went down.

When emergency officials reached Alls, he had exited the 1978 Ag Cat on his own and was lying in the rice field where the plane went down. continued...
