HUTCHINSON—Three people had minor injures after an accident just before 9:30a.m. Saturday at the Prairie Skies Air Show in Hutchinson. 

The Kansas Highway Patrol reported a 1962 Beech 23 Fixed Wing Single Engine airplane piloted by Dallas Arthur Hewett, 63, Wichita, attempted to take off from Hutchinson Airport. 

The aircraft had a power failure in the engine and stalled out. The pilot attempted to land, made a hard landing in the wheat field just south of the airport.

The KHP reported Hewett and two passengers  Samantha Leonor Dagorret, 29, Wichita, and Maxton W. Susee, 9, Hutchison, had minor injuries.  The KHP did not report where they were treated. The accident remains under investigation.


HUTCHINSON, Kan. — It appears that a plane in town for the Prairie Skies Air Show had to make a landing in a field rather than on a runway at the Hutchinson Airport.
