Also on this last weekend was the Southport Airshow, the last one in this years airshow calendar. The team Guinot Wing Walkers put on thier usual daring display, rather them up there than me. Her one of th eyoung ladies climbs out of her harness and works her way down into the cockpit at a hundred plus feet above the ground and an iarsped of more than several miles an hour.

The aircraft is the Boeing Stearman Biplane, capable of speeds up to 150mph and very manoeuvrable.
