Did that pilot attempt a roll with all those passengers on board while he was towing a streamer that said "It's a girl!"It wasn't a "stunt plane" as far as I can tell.
It was a Cessna Turbo Stationair 206.
They are referring to the fly-by smoke trail as a "stunt."
Gender reveal parties are stupid and narcissistic but the culprit here will likely be crew flying the aircraft in an aggressive maneuver outside of safe limits.
The aircraft had 4 people on board, out of which 2 survived.
The takeaway here should be that if you are planning on taking any flights in small aircraft outside of the First World, take a hard look at not just that charter carrier but also at the regulatory agencies for that area and how they stack up against the FAA.
This kind of maneuvering in this kind of airframe at that altitude, over people no less and with 4 souls on board seems incredibly reckless.
