OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Two Utahns were not seriously injured today in a plane crash in Nebraska.

Barry Pewtress of Morgan, Utah, was trying to land the two-seat plane when he crashed east of the runway, near the Chadron airport. He says wind was a factor in the crash.

Pewtress and passenger Daryl Bell of Kaysville, Utah, declined medical treatment. They were on their way to an air show in Wisconsin.
