UK Pensioner conquers wing-walking record. This is a great story. Les 'Dizzy' Seales 88, a pre-war British sidecar champion who as a WWII RAF gunner heroically walked across the wing of his plane in mid flight to save his trapped pilot, and 15 years ago lost a leg in an accident involving a bus. Yesterday Les took the record of being the oldest person to stand on the wing of a flying aircraft.
