The FAA is classifying that plane as an "amateur built experimental aircraft."
Trooper Tony Fulton, DPS Spokesperson explained, "Shortly after he took off from one of these touch and goes he lost power to the aircraft. He was attempting to turn back and land and he didn't make it far enough and set the aircraft down in this field."
Fulton says because the pilot was not hurt and the aircraft suffered minor damage, the FAA will not send a team to the site, but use information collected from DPS for its investigation.
