MAPLETON (AP) — An investigator from the Federal Aviation Administration was expected to visit the site of a small plane crash here.

The Bangor Daily News reported that 39-year-old Patrick Driscoll tried to land the pontoon-equipped, single-engine plane on Hanson Lake Sunday evening but the engine failed and he crashed in a field off Route 227. Driscoll walked away from the crash uninjured.

The plane, a Cessna A185F, sustained damage to at least one float, the fuselage, propeller and right wing.
