Breitling Wing Walkers

 

The Boeing Stearman biplane of the Brightling Wing walkers aerobatic team during the dispaly at the Flying Legends airshow earlier this year.

They may be strapped onto the wings but speeds of up to 150 mph and 'G' forces of up to 4G mean that there is no way they would get me up there.

Extraordinary wing walkers. I am pretty sure I would prefer them to you on my wing anyway. I even may get lost with one on my wing.

PS. wish I could fly a plane smile
Les Auld: So do I Louis, thanks for the comment.

You might get me up there, Les, but standing on my feet, not my hands! Unbelievable. I love the orange, of course, but your images are amazing, especially that top one. It's picture book!
Les Auld: It is when they unstrap themselves and climb down into the cockpit during the flypast that gets me Ginnie, thanks for the comment.
Great shots Les. Would you not walk the wing even this young lady was there to hold your hand smile
Les Auld: I think I would need both of them Brian, thanks for the comment.
Brave lasses and a very fine shot.
Les Auld: Certainly are John, thanks for the comment.
