    ALBANY, N.Y. - New York state police say a small plane is undamaged and its pilot unhurt after an emergency landing in a field south of the Catskills.

    Troopers say the single-engine Piper Cherokee Warrior made the landing Monday in the Sullivan County town of Bethel after departing Rutland, Vt.

    It was en route to Pottsville, Pa.

    Police say 22-year-old pilot Brent Kozura of Pottsville was being diverted to Sullivan County Airport because of mechanical problems but was unable to reach the airport and landed the plane in a nearby field.
