WINNEBAGO COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A man and a woman were killed after their plane crashed and sank into Lake Winnebago. 

The pilot made was trying to make an attempted emergency landing about 1/2 mile from shore. According to The Oshkosh Northwestern, an eye-witness watched the plane go into the water.  A fishing boat arrived about five minutes after the crash.

Authorities says the plane was travelling from EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh.  Fond du Lac County 911 Center recevied a report of a plane crash around around 11:49 a.m.

The plane went down just east of Wend'ts on the Lake, along the west shorline near the Fond du Lac/Winnebago County line.

The 1940 Piper Cub was registered in Illinois. 

Foud du Lac County Sheriff's Department says the National Transportation Safety Board is taking over the investigation.
