The female wing walker was able to make it back into the plane before the crash but both her and the pilot suffered severe burns.
Two stunt pilots survived a plane crash caused by engine trouble at an air show in Texas on Saturday, the Federal Aviation Administration said.
Stunned onlookers at the Air Fiesta show watched as the plane plummeted, leaving a white trail behind as it dove toward a wooded area near an airport in Brownsville, Texas.
The stunt team onboard -- married couple Kyle and Amanda Franklin -- "suffered severe burns following the crash," according to a statement on the air show's website.
They were in the middle of a wing-walking act when the engine problems began, FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford said.
"The female wing-walker was able to get back into the airplane, but the plane crashed into a thicket near the runway," Lunsford said.
