A Sugar Grove, Ill., firefighter sprays down the wreckage of a World War II-era B-17 bomber after it burned following an emergency landing in a farm field in Oswego, Ill., today. The vintage plane had taken off from nearby Aurora Municipal Airport. The Federal Aviation Administration believes the seven people on board the plane escaped uninjured.
