Authorities are now investigating the crash of one of two planes that were part of the Red Bull plane swap. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said the pilot of the plane that spun out of control on Sunday (April 24) evening and crashed ended up landing safely by parachute. The other pilot regained control of the second plane and landed safely. The federal agency said it denied an organiser’s request for an exemption from regulations that require people operating planes to be at crew-members stations and wear safety belts.
