A September plane crash in Texas that left at least one person injured was caused by a gender reveal stunt gone wrong, officials said in a report Friday.
An Air Tractor AT 602 crashed on September 7 in Turkey, Texas, after slowing down too much in order to dump out “350 gallows of pink water” as a part of a gender reveal, the NTSB reported.
The pilot told officials that they were flying at a low altitude when the plane “got too slow,” causing it to aerodynamically stall before crashing. “The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage, right wing, and empennage,” the NTSB report read. An FAA inspector also reported that there were two people aboard the single-seat plane. The pilot sustained minor injuries and the second passenger was unharmed.
