UPDATE:  The plane that crashed Saturday afternoon in a field at Highway 84 and 171st Avenue near Cordova, IL. is a 4-passenger plane.  The pilot was the only person in the plane, and was able to get out and walk away without any injuries. 

When the plane went down, it hit power lines, lost several parts and landed on the belly of the plane. 

Experts KWQC talked to on the scene say this landing took a skilled pilot, to land with minimal damage and no injures.

A flight base operator from the Erie Air Park tells KWQC the engine quit on the pilot and the propeller stopped. 

The FAA and NTSB will be out Monday to investigate.
