About 8.30pm, the aircraft suffered engine failure, causing the pilot to perform an emergency landing in a paddock near the Mitchell Hwy.
The pilot of the plane, a 29-year-old Springsure man, sustained a cut to the head, concussion, and suspected broken nose.
The passenger, a 30-year-old Victorian woman, sustained minor injuries.
