Small plane crashes during Texas gender reveal celebration

NTSB report shows pilot attempted gender reveal flight before September plane crash

This incident was the latest in a string of gender reveal stunts gone awry.

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. The airplane "got too slow" and stalled before crashing.

The aircraft - an Air Tractor AT-602 - sustained damage to the fuselage (the main body of the plane), right wing, and empennage (the tail of the plane), according to the report.

According to documents from the NTSB, the pilot was 49-year-old Raj L. Horan the passenger in the plane was Jennifer J. Hurrell, age unknown, both of Plainview, Texas.

Spring Hill Mall Sears store to close by February
The retailer of kitchen utensils and appliances plans to close all 160 of its stores by the end of the year. Transformco cited "a hard retail environment and other challenges" for the drastic move.

According to an official accident report filed by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the pilot accidentally flew the aircraft too slowly as he was attempting to unload almost 350 gallons of pink-colored water for the reveal.

The plane reportedly dumped over hundreds of gallons of pink water - nearly 350 gallons before the aircraft stalled.

The pilot said there had been no "preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation".

Gender reveal parties are meant to be a celebration for parents prior to the birth of their child, but some have gone catastrophically wrong in recent years.
