8-year-old Tiger Brewer from London has become the world’s youngest wing-walker. Tiger, from Notting Hill, ﬂew at 100mph at 1,000 feet over Rendcomb airﬁeld in Gloucestershire on the wing of his grandfather Vic Norman’s biplane. Tiger said: “On take-off I was scared. From one to 10 it was probably a nine, but when I was in the air it was probably a ﬁ ve. It felt amazing, like I was on top of the world. It was cold and windy but it can’t be beat. You don’t have a parachute, just a pair of goggles.” The world record was previously held by Guy Mason, son of Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, who ﬁrst wing-walked in 2001 aged 11.
Lafayette, Louisiana: Two year old James Leininger’s parents have become convinced their son has had a former life as a WWII ﬁghter pilot after his repeated nightmares. Andrea Leininger, said: “I was walking down the hall and I heard him saying, ‘Airplane crash, plane on ﬁre, little man can’t get out’. It chilled me to my bone hearing this. I asked him what happened to his plane and he said, ‘It crashed on ﬁre’. I asked how it crashed and he said the Japanese shot his plane. Flicking through a book, the two-year-old pointed at a picture of Iwo Jima in the Paciﬁc and said that was where his plane was shot down. His father, Bruce, found that just one pilot died during the battle of Iwo Jima, James M Huston Jnr, 21. He was shot down on March 3, 1945. The Leiningers have since traced the relatives of the dead pilot who they say were impressed by James’s apparent memories of the war.
