Ann Arbor facilities supervisor Lynn Crum said the pilot of a single-engine, two-seat plane was alone. He says the plane circled around and crashed in a field about 150 feet from the small airport's runway.

Crum says the man was "in shock" but alive after the crash. He was taken by ambulance to University of Michigan Hospitals.

The airport is near Ellsworth and State roads.
