Air Show Stunt Pilot Amanda Franklin Dies of Injuries 2 Months After Crash [VIDEO]
Two months after crash-landing at a Texas air show, wingwalker Amanda Franklin has died from complications from severe burns she received in the crash.
She was 25.
Franklin and her husband, Kyle, flew in St. Cloud’s Great Minnesota Air Show nearly a year ago. They performed the same “Pirated Skies” stunt act in St. Cloud as they were performing at the time of their crash at Air Fiesta in Brownsville Texas, March 12.
Kyle Franklin announced his wife’s death on his Facebook page.
“It is with a broken heart that I tell you that my beautiful girl Amanda passed away at 10:10 central time Friday evening. Beside her was her adoring husband Kyle, her mother Jeanie, her brother Matt, her sister-in-law Michelle and her devoted mother-in-law Audean. Thank you all again for your love, Goodnight and God bless Amanda, Kyle.”
Two funds have been set-up for the Franklin family:
If you contribute to either fund, you’re asked to specify “The Kyle and Amanda Franklin Fund.”
