Plane crashes after gender reveal stunt goes horribly wrong

A plane has stalled and crashed in the middle of a gender reveal in West Texas.

The newly released report found that a September 7 plane crash occurred when the pilot’s crop-duster stalled out after dumping hundreds of litres of pink water during a couple’s gender reveal celebration.

One passenger suffered minor injuries when the plane went down near the town of Turkey, about 420 kilometres northwest of Dallas.

A National Transportation Safety Board report released Thursday (local time) says the pilot dumped about 1,325 litres of pink water from the aircraft, which then stalled and crashed.

Gender reveal parties for expecting parents have grown in popularity but mishaps can be deadly.

Last month, an Iowa woman was killed when a homemade device that was meant to spray colourful powder into the air instead exploded like a pipe bomb.
