Taipei, March 11 (CNA) The pilot of an ultralight aircraft suffered only minor injuries after his plane crashed into a paddy field in Changhua County Saturday afternoon.

The pilot, surnamed Chen, 53, was flying from Yunlin to Changhua, but apparently departed from the designated flight path as a result of strong winds.

A witness surnamed Lee said he was working in a paddy field when he saw the aircraft begin to move from side to side at a height of about three or four-stories from the ground and then lose control, crashing into a nearby paddy field in Pitou Township.
