Gender Reveal Party Leads To Plane Crash In Texas

An airplane crashed after the pilot dumped about 350 gallons of pink water out of the aircraft for a gender reveal party on Sept. 7 i in Turkey, Texas, reports Buzzfeed News.

According to National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), crash report, the pilot and a passenger were flying in the one-seat aircraft which “got too slow” after dropping the pink water and “aerodynamically stalled, impacted terrain, and came to rest inverted.”

The NTSB report also said: “The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.”

The pilot told an inspector with the Federal Aviation Administration in a Sept. 17 phone call, that he was doing a gender-reveal flight for a friend.

Gender reveal parties have led to a massive wildfire and one woman’s death. The parties also have also been criticized for reinforcing antiquated gender stereotypes.
