No one was hurt when a small plane made an emergency landing on a dirt road north of Holdrege, Nebraska Friday afternoon.

Pilot Mark Budde of Leoti, Kansas told authorities he took off from the Holdrege airport at noon and the Piper Turbo Arrow lost power shortly thereafter. He determined he didn't have enough power to return to the airport.

A wing caught nearby corn, spinning the plane into a field. Damage was reported to the aircraft , the corn and an irrigation pipe.
