‘Red Bull Gives You Wings,’ is a prominent slogan of the brand that you may have noticed in its advertisements. People can perform unimaginable things with the strength of Red Bull, even flying, according to the advertising and marketing for the energy drink. The company felt it could carry off a dangerous act that had never been attempted before, but it backfired spectacularly.
A video of a Red Bull stunt in which two pilots attempted to change planes mid-flight over the Arizona desert has gone viral. While one pilot was successful in pulling off the trick, the other was unsuccessful and had to deploy his parachute. The plane he was meant to board mid-flight crashed, but both pilots and the other plane were unharmed.
For Red Bull, cousins Luke Aikins, 48, and Andy Farrington, 39, from Arizona, tried the plane swap prank. Each pilot was meant to turn off their jet’s engine and put it into a nosedive while jumping out and free falling towards the other pilot’s plane. The pilots were supposed to fly into the other plane through the window and then land it safely.

The jet crashed in Eloy, about 65 miles (104 kilometres) southeast of Phoenix, according to local officials.
Hulu broadcasted live coverage of the stunt. People who saw the stunt recorded it and published it on social media.

The accident of one of the two planes that were part of the Red Bull plane exchange is currently being investigated by authorities. The pilot of the plane that spun out of control and crashed on Sunday (April 24) evening landed safely by parachute, according to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The second pilot recovered control of the plane and safely landed it. According to the federal authorities, an organizer’s request for an exception from norms requiring pilots to remain at crew member stations and wear safety belts was refused.
