A Hinesville pilot is in good condition this morning after crashing his plane in a field on Fort Stewart.

The pilot was traveling from Virginia to Hinesville in his single-engine Cessna plane when he started having engine trouble. His plane went down on Fort Stewart property. A Coast Guard search-and-rescue team found the wreckage, and pulled the pilot from his overturned airplane.

Fortunately he was not injured.

The FAA is still investigating the incident.
