Very quiet in the forums theses days.

Anyway just seen this. A couple of 9 year old girls do a spot of wing walking. How did that get past the elf n safety lot?

BBC.

More likely the grandfather will be accused of child abuse as he was flying one of the aircraft. Or even the parents for allowing it.

On a happier side it is good to see young kids involving themselves in a worthwhile endeavour and enjoying it.

So I am not alone in web land.

When you hear stories of kids being stopped doing things that we used to take for granted, it is as you say great to see this sort of thing.

But lets wait for all the doom-sayers to stick there nebs in and accuse the parents and grandfather of all sorts of abuse.

Normally I am all in favour of kids doing adventurous things but try Googling "Wing walking accidents" . I am not sure I would take my grandchildren if I were a pilot. (Have done a tandem freefall with a 18 year old grandchild!!)

Is that not a modern idea? Did not Ryan Air introduce it?

H&S

Is it all done on a Wing and a prayer?

But they didn't. They waved!

Good for them. How nice to see children doing such things, and how doubly nice to see little girls behaving like little girls instead of aping some tarty pop star!
