OMRO, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The pilot of an ultra-light plane was killed last night in a crash in eastern Wisconsin. It happened about 7:15 west of Omro in Winnebago County.

The F-A-A and sheriff's officials said the pilot was the only person in the craft when it went down in a hay-field in the town of Poygan. It was said to be close to a remote air strip. Officials could not immediately say where the ultra-light took off from, or where it was going.

The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.
