Wingwalker Amanda Franklin dies

Sad news: airshow stunt performer Amanda Franklin died on Friday, May 27th. She had been treated for injuries and burns sustained in a crash on March 12. Amanda and her husband Kyle were performing a wing-walking act when the engine of their Waco biplane caught fire. Amanda was able to get back in the cockpit and fasten her seatbelt but suffered severe injuries and burns in the crash. Our condolences go to her family.
