A pilot was performing daredevil aerobatics at an Argentina air show when one wing of his plane suddenly just broke off.
According to Sky News, thousands of spectators at the air show thought the plane's mishap was just part of the show, as the plane plunged through the air to the ground.
Dino Moline, a RANS Air Brigade pilot, activated a parachute system that protected the entire plane as it fell, which enabled him to walk away safely once the plane hit the ground.
Moline was performing in the air show at the El Trebol aviation club in Santa Fe, Argentina. He said when the wing fell off it was like "an explosion."
He said: "I don't know what happened to me, I believe that it was metal fatigue and I felt an explosion. My foot got burned but I'm fine."
