2 Injured as ultralight plane stalls in Metro-East

LEBANON, Ill. (KMOV.com) -- Two men were injured in the Metro-East after an ultralight airplane had a rough takeoff Saturday afternoon.

Witnesses say the plane's engine stalled, forcing the pilot to make an immediate landing in a field in Lebanon, Ill. around 3 p.m.

One witness said she heard the engine die shortly after takeoff, and said the plane "went tumbling over."

The two men were treated for minor injuries, and are expected to be fine.
