The pilot of a crop dusting plane was injured when his small plane crashed west of Minot Air Force Base Sunday.
And it was nearly two hours until he was discovered by a fellow crop duster.
The Highway Patrol investigated the accident and says the pilot - 48-year-old Brian Sturm - reported a problem with the left wing of the airplane, causing the aircraft to go out of control.
He crashed about 7:30 Sunday morning and was able to crawl out of the cockpit of the plane.
He lay in the field until he was discovered about 9:15.
Sturm was taken to Trinity Hospital by helicopter for treatment of injuries that were termed "minor."
The single-engine Air Tractor plane was considered a total loss.
The Highway Patrol and FAA are continuing the investigation.
