Wing-Walk for the NKF 

The first man to Wing-Walk was Omar Locklear in 1918 on a Curtis Jenny Bi-plane, legend has it that he first climbed out onto the lower wings during his pilot training in the Army Air Service during World War I. Undaunted, Ormer just climbed out of the cockpit onto the wings in flight whenever there was a mechanical issue and fixed the problem.

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.

Now you have the opportunity to be part of that history, to give your own Wing walking display in front of your invited guests – and create a memorable occasion you will remember forever.
