Two stunt pilots, married couple Kyle and Amanda Franklin, survived a plane crash caused by engine trouble at an air show named Air Fiesta in Brownsville (Texas) on Saturday, the Federal Aviation Administration confirmed.
The couple suffered severe burns.
“They were in the middle of a wing-walking act when the engine problems began. The female wing-walker was able to get back into the airplane, but the plane crashed into a thicket near the runway,” FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford said.
For Amanda and Kyle tragedy is no stranger. Their fathers, who were also performers, died as a result of crash during a show in 2005.
