The pilot made a landing in a grassy area west of Harvey airfield. The landing was without incident until the aircraft hit the tall grass in the field, where the pilot lost control of the aircraft. The pilot is not injured. NTSB and FAA will not be investigating. The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office will complete an investigation.
