Subject: BS: Wingwalk..UK.where can I do one?
From: Georgiansilver
Date: 15 Aug 07 - 04:20 PM

Many of you know that I do charity work of one sort or another...firewalking etc....so I want to do a 'wingwalk' but am not sure who I contact to arrange one. If anyone knows of a company or individual who might facilitate this could you please either PM me or let me know on here.
Thanks and Best wishes, Mike.

Yikes!!

Mike, be sure you remember the First Rule of Wing-Walking (also works for changing jobs):    Don't let go with one hand until you've got a firm grip on something with the other!

Try the Utterly Butterly folks ....I don't know their website in UK, but they certainly encourage wingwalking

Thanks, Cluin! I thought it was going to be from that movie where the airplane is loaded with the stoneworks of an old castle, being taken to the states and a gargoyle comes alive on the wing. Can't remember the name of it.

Georgiansilver, here are a couple of links:

wingwalking;

HERE's their pdf info about what they can offer;

and, HERE is one man's experience, apparently with Utterly Butterly, as mentioned above.

Good luck and DO hang on!

Wingwalking on a Tiger Moth?

Oh HELL no!

You want a Stearman. You REALLY want a Stearman.

On the other hand, I've flown a couple of Stearmans but
never a Moth, Tiger or otherwise. For the pilot, the
Moths must be more fun.

Thanks for the info so far. It is actually quite frustrating as nothing has worked so far. I had already tried the Utterly Butterly (team Guinot) source but they do not allow money raising for charity.
Any further suggestions will be welcomed....anyone any contacts?
Best wishes, Mike.

Good Lord! This reinforces for me once again that you cannot really guess anything about people from limited interaction on a forum. I would never have guessed Georgiansilver was into such daredevil activities - Maybe it's the handle, Georgiansilver, but I pictured you more as an antique collecting type with a nice little garden full of Hollyhocks!

Good luck and do hang on!

mmmmmmmm interesting....antique dealing/collecting is a hobby and I have a cabinet in a prestigious Antique Centre. Have done a couple of 'firewalks' over hot coals, bungeed, abseiled,been to Romania a few times, overland, with Humanitarian aid etc etc for charity and people tell me that at my age I should not be doing these things. I am enjoying my retirement!!!!!!
My doctor told me I have the heart of a thirty year old but when I asked him if he could do anything about the body....well......
Best wishes, Mike.

Bee - one deranged member thinks GS is a sex-pest and a pervert, and that he should be arrested! If she actually knew him, she'd realise what a ridiculous idea that is, and what an pillock she makes of herself in even suggesting it.

BTW - he is in antiques! But his hollyhocks don't bear thinking about! LOL!

Wear a parachute. Maybe just a reserve, but wear a chute. The airflow is/can be quite fierce.

Google "Flying Circus", G-zer... It's in Faulkquier (sp) County, Va...

Short of that, if you got the $80 an hour to rent a Cesna, we can bget you walkin' in no time... Just get yer insurance apid up and a Greyhound Bus ticket to Va., bring yer $80 an hour and the glory will be all yers...

Oh, you don't wnata walk no Cesna wing??? I wouldn't either... You want to walk a lower wing of a Stetsman (sp)... Okay, that will cost you a few extra bucks...

Gee thanks Bobert..you're all heart.........thanks foir trying to help anyway. However it would appear that I am too 'big' to undertake such a flight as I would have to be under 13 stones weight...too much to think of dieting to that, at my age, and enjoying food and drink as I do.
Thanks to all contributors anyway. Best wishes, Mike.

          Just get a bigger airplane.

         "I am too 'big' to undertake such a flight as I would have to be under 13 stones weight..."

         Holy shite batman, that would mean that I have to lose 13 stones weight to be under 13 stones.

Perhaps we can get use of the Spruce Goose for a short walkabout. that one Should hold us.

Chip2447(the round one)
P.S. Used to work with a little girl from Ireland who once asked me my weigh, in stones, she didn't quite get the concept of pounds. when I told her I weighed about 17 or 18 stones she nearly fell out of her seat. She claimed that no-one she knew in Ireland weighted that much. wonder what her reaction to 25 stones and a bit more today would be      today.
