Nine-year-old cousins from Wandsworth become youngest formation wingwalkers
A pair of nine-year-old cousins have become the world's youngest formation wingwalkers.
Rose Powell, of Wandsworth, and Flame Brewer, of Kensal Rise, took on the challenge to raise money for their friend Eli Crossley, aged six, who suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
The pair took to the skies on their grandfather Vic Norman's vintage biplanes from RFC Rendcomb airfield, near Cirencester on August 21.
They are the third generation of their families to wingwalk on the Boeing Stearman aircraft, which soared through the sky at 100mph.
Rose, a student at Thomas's, in Fulham, said: "It feels really nice to be doing something to help Eli and hopefully get lots of people to know about the Duchenne Children's Trust."
