SHIAWASSEE COUNTY (WKZO) -- Two men from east Michigan were killed when their homebuilt plane made a hard landing in a cornfield in Shiawassee County Saturday afternoon.

Dead are 63-year-old Richard Hayward of Vassar and 49-year-old Mark Kozen of Caro.

Witnesses say the plane sputtered and it appeared as though they were trying to land land in the cornfield but they came down too steeply with their landing gear only partially down.

The FAA will be conducting the investigation.
