AN ULTRALIGHT plane lies on the ground at the Willamette Country Music Festival in Brownsville Monday afternoon, Aug. 20, after it crashed into temporary fencing where the beer garden had been. Linn County Undersheriff Paul Timm said deputies responded at 4:40 p.m. to find the 1992 fixed-wing single-engine plane on the ground. Pilot John Loomis, 69, of Eugene, told them he was taking photos of the area. Loomis was transported to Riverbend Hospital with minor lacerations and back pain. The FAA and the NTSB were notified and an investigation is continuing, Timm said.
