Tom Lackey – Oldest Wing Walker

For our documentary we managed to get hold of Tom Lackey, who holds the Guinness World Record for the oldest ever wing walker. At the age of 90 years and 5 months he flew himself into the record books by beating his own world record set a year or so prior to his latest wing walk.
