Another 15 thousand pounds was raised for charity last weekend at the airfield. This will bring the estimated amount raised this season to nearing 100 thousand pounds.
The Wing Walk Company operates a classic Boeing Stearman bi-plane giving fund raisers an ideal opportunity to indulge in what can only be described as one of the ultimate thrills. Strapped to a purpose built rig, the ‘wing walker’ enjoys the ultimate view of the world below as the aircraft gracefully weavers about the sky eagerly watched over by those left behind on the ground.
It was a tribute to all the organisers and participants that everyone obeyed the social distancing directives but still managed to thoroughly enjoy the whole experience.
Wing walking will recommence next year at Compton Abbas Airfield whereby it is hoped the amounts raised for charities will be exceeded yet again.
