WASHINGTON — U.S. military officials say a small, small single engine plane crashed near Muncie, Indiana, after operating erratically. They said they believe the pilot had been suffering from a lack of oxygen.

A spokesman for U.S. Northern Command said that military officials do not believe it is terrorism related. Instead, Michael Kucharek said the pilot may have blacked out due to a condition known as hypoxia.

The plane crashed in a field on a farm. Officials said the pilot was the only person on the plane. Kucharek said the pilot took off from a small airport near Grand Rapids, Mich., and was at an altitude of about 23,000 feet and descending slowly. He said the plane was heading south-southeast and had been speeding up and slowing down to dangerous speeds. Law enforcement was on the scene.
