Last year seemed to be a pretty good year for North American acts with regards to accidents at airshows. This year does not appear to have had the greatest start. Kyle and Amanda Franklin were both seriously injured in an accident during the Air Fiesta in Brownsville, Texas today.
Many in the aviation world recall the terrible accident in 2005 that took both Kyle’s father and Amanda’s father. I would hate to see Kyle and Amanda suffer the same fate. I encourage you to visit the Franklin’s Flying Circus page and offer a word of support. With the injuries they have sustained, they’ll need all the uplifting from the community they can get.
