ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York state police say a small plane is undamaged and its pilot unhurt after an emergency landing in a field south of the Catskills.

Troopers say the single-engine Piper Cherokee Warrior made the landing Monday in the Sullivan County town of Bethel after departing Rutland, Vt.

It was en route to Pottsville, Pa.

Police say 22-year-old pilot Brent Kozura of Pottsville was being diverted to Sullivan County Airport because of mechanical problems but was unable to reach the airport and landed the plane in a nearby field.

The FAA is investigating.
