A single-engine plane crashed into a field Tuesday afternoon in DeSoto County.

It happened around noon on SR-760 in Nocatee, just south of Arcadia.

The Arcadia Municipal Airport said a small plane left the airport and lost oil pressure before crashing a few miles away in an open pasture. The plane landed on its belly.

The pilot was airlifted to the hospital but is expected to be OK.
