An airplane crashed after releasing 350 gallons (about 1 300l) of pink water.

Pilot Raj Horan (49) was flying at a low altitude when he released the pink water over a field in Texas in the US, Sun UK reports.

Due to the weight of the water combined with the low altitude, the plane crashed to the ground leaving it in a twisted heap of metal, Buzzfeed News reports.

An unnamed Texas couple were excited to be having a baby girl and wanted to wow their family and friends.

But things went south mid-reveal after the plane stalled and eventually crashed.

Luckily, the pilot and Jennifer Harrell, a passenger on board, only suffered minor injuries.

According to Raj, the plane had no mechanical failures or malfunctions pre-impact, Independent reports.

Last year, a bizarre gender reveal involving a gun stunt caused a massive wildfire in the US.

The blaze spread over 47 000 acres, causing major damage.

A police officer and his wife had planned to shoot at a target, filled with an explosive that would reveal their baby’s gender, but the explosion went wrong and burned surrounding land for more than a week.
