See the Frightening Moment a Stunt Pilot Crashed Into a Field During Air Show Practice


"Anytime you can walk away, it's a good landing."

A stunt pilot in Idaho walked away with nothing more than a sprained ankle Friday after his plane made an unexpected crash landing during a run-through of his air show routine.

Buck Roetman was piloting his biplane through a series of barrel rolls ahead of the Legacy Air Show in Rexburg when the aircraft started experiencing mechanical trouble and gave out during the stunt, KIDK-TV reported.

Video of the incident shows the plane tumbling through the air, ultimately crash-landing in a field of grass.

"He did a masterful job at getting her right–side–up. He had a problem with the prop and lost power and....he just got in trouble," John Bagley, a pilot and show organizer told KIDK. "Anytime you can walk away, it's a good landing."
