Officials said there was not much damage to the plane, and its sole occupant -- the pilot -- refused medical treatment.
Authorities say the pilot suffered from a couple of scrapes and bruises on his arm.
According to city spokesperson Mark Mazzaferro, the plane took off from the Nut Tree Airport when there was some type of "issue" and the pilot had to make a hard landing.
The pilot reported he felt something was wrong shortly after takeoff so he was able to land in the field between two new housing developments.
