GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Two men were injured Sunday night after a small plane left Green Bay, and crashed in heavy fog at its destination in Rochester Minnesota.

Fire officials said the pilot missed the runway – and the aircraft bounced and flipped over in a farm field.

The 1976 Cessna 172 Skyhawk did not start on fire.

Two male passengers were taken to a Rochester hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The pilot and a boy on the plane were not injured.

The crash happened around 6:30 p.m.

Firefighters said they had trouble finding the aircraft due to the fog – and they used a GPS from the pilot’s cell phone to locate the wreckage.

Officials said the plane was owned by the Southeastern Minnesota Flying Club. The FAA is investigating.
