Silver Winged Wing Walkers

From Aeronauts & Aviators, 3:20 pm on 21 November 2013

Lynda Chanwai-Earle gets into the cockpit with Pam Collings and Susan Scott, two of our country's top female aviators. Pam Collings made history as the first woman to represent our country in the World Aerobatic Championships in Kiev, Russia in 1976, and pilot Susan Scott is a daring fifth-generation 'wing-walker' riding atop antique aircraft. Lynda joins those officially nuts about flying, but first she takes a look back in time with Jack Perkins and his Spectrum from 1973 - Wing Stands and Barrel Rolls.
