The pilot of a small experimental airplane that crashed at the Capitol Drive Airport this afternoon is alert and appears to be uninjured, Fire Chief Charlie Myers said.
"He didn't appear to be in any distress whatsoever," Myers said of the pilot. However, the pilot is being evaluated by Brookfield paramedics.
The plane landed upside down in a marshy area, and was found in water about boot high. The circumstances of the crash are unknown at this time, Myers said.
Flight for Life and multiple area fire departments responded.
As of 2:45 p.m., the two-seater airplane was still on the airfield.
