small planeOn Friday, April 18th 2014, Dan Marcotte, an experienced aerobatic stunt pilot survived a fiery plane crash by parachuting out of his single-passenger plane.

The plane bursted into flames and crashed on interstate 89 near Burlington, Vermont, moments after he jumped out. Hearing the explosion, the fire fighters rushed to scene and found Marcotte’s parachute dandling from a tree.

Vt. State Police Lt. Garry Scott said that Marcotte probably got the intuition that something was wrong with the plane, and he jumped out in time. He got some minor injuries, but his life is out of danger.

Marcotte is well known for his amazing stunts at grand events like Independence Day celebrations on the Burlington waterfront.
