Now you have the opportunity to be part of that history, to give your own Wingwalking display in front of your invited guests – and create a memorable occasion you will remember forever.
In the 1950s Wing-walking started again in the USA, mostly on Stearman Bi-planes (LINK Aircraft info) which were considered much safer and stronger than other the early Pre-War bi-planes.
In the UK the Tiger Club,then based in Redhill,Surrey, fitted a Rig to a Tiger Moth in 1962 (see Aeroplane monthly Feb 2009 edition) and a little later the “Barnstormers” in Northamptonshire followed suit.
Finally in the late 1980s Stearman Bi-planes, the first to be fitted with a Wingwalking rig, arrived in the UK most famously sponsored by Cadburys and later by Utterly Butterly.

On November 8, 1918, Locklear wowed the crowd at Barron Field, Texas, with his daredevil wing-walking stunts. Wing walking was seen as an extreme form of barnstorming, and wing walkers would constantly take up the challenge of outdoing one another.
