A scary moment for a pilot in Pine Bluffs early Wednesday afternoon.
Mark Nardin of Circle-S Aviation lost control of his single engine Cessna 188 and crashed into a field about two miles west of the Pine Bluffs Municipal Airport at approximately 11 a.m.
The plane did not catch on fire and no chemicals were on board. Nardin walked away from the crash and sustained no injuries.
The Laramie Country Sheriff's Department, Laramie County Fire District #5 and Pine Bluffs EMS all responded to the crash.
The plane is used for crop dusting and Nardin had just come down from Montana to help for the summer and was doing a series of touch and go's.
Circle-S Aviation owner, Steve Peiffer, says if the pilot wouldn't have been someone as experienced as Nardin, it could have been much worse.
"We bent an airplane. It was in a landing role and hit the edge of an irrigation ditch and folded up the main gear and put the nose of the airplane on the ground and the pilot rode it out and that was it," Peiffer said.
The cause of the crash is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board.
