JEROME, Idaho (AP) - The Jerome County Sheriff’s Office says a 42-year-old stunt pilot was injured when his small plane crashed Tuesday evening.

The Times-News reports (https://is.gd/9Q87y7 ) that Kelly Fairbanks was conscious when he was taken to a hospital in Boise but deputies didn’t know the extent of his injuries.

The plane crashed in a corn field at about 7:40 p.m. at U.S. Route 93 and 100 South.

Fairbanks has been a stunt pilot for years, flying both model and full-scale aircraft. The plane he was flying was an aerobatic monoplane, which can travel up to 250 mph.
