Wing Walking: Dancing High Above the Clouds

VLOG


MY EXPERIENCE

Better than sky diving, hang gliding, zip-lining and bungee jumping combined.. and yes I have done all of these things… and I must tell you my experience wing walking was even better than I could ever imagine.

I learned about wing walking from my friend Rhonda. We’ve done sky diving together before so generally anything adventurous and out of the box we both would be up for it.

I can’t lie, I had no idea what it was nor that it even existed, but I knew that if Rhonda wanted to do it it would be amazing!! And it was beyond AMAZING!!

Fun Fact: Rhonda was my high school volleyball coach 🙂 She is also a phenomenal realtor in Florida if you are looking for a home. Check out her video: https://www.facebook.com/rhonda.townsend.79/videos/10218839989407493/

So wing walking (according to Wikipedia) is the act of moving along the wings of a biplane during flight, sometimes transferring between planes.

Currently there are 1 location  in the world to do wing walking, and this is it!! There is a location in England you can do Wing riding, and to us it just wasn’t as cool. Wing riding is basically you taking off and landing the aircraft with a person on the wing.

Mason Wing Walking allows you to actually climb out of the airplane mid air to get on the wing.
