BOZEMAN, Mont. — The Gallatin County sheriff’s office is investigating after shots were fired at a crop dusting airplane as it applied fungicide to a wheat field near Belgrade.

Headwaters Flying Service owner Cody Folkvord says his plane was hit twice Tuesday morning by shots fired from the ground. He was not injured and was able to land safely.

Folkvord says one shot in the aircraft’s left wing and the other hit its right wing, at most about 18 inches from the cockpit.

Undersheriff Dan Springer tells the Bozeman Daily Chronicle (bit.ly/2u9wtss) that detectives are investigating.
