The Beacon-News is reporting, “Geneva man and his wife were unhurt early Friday after the man landed his small plane in a cornfield shortly after takeoff from the Aurora Municipal Airport in Sugar Grove.

Kane County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Lt. Pat Gengler said Edward Bonifas, 58, and his wife Carmella Bonifas, 65, were in the plane.

He said Edward Bonifas took off about 7 a.m. Friday and developed some kind of problem with the aircraft almost immediately. He managed to get the plane up over some utility wires, and then land in the middle of a cornfield west of Dugan Road and south of Scott Road.

“He went up and over,” Gengler said…”
