Boy, 8, beats wing-walking record


An eight-year-old boy has become the youngest person in the world to "wing-walk".

Tiger Brewer was carried through the air at 100mph over Rendcomb Airfield in Gloucestershire on the wing of his grandfather Vic Norman's bi-plane.

The world record was previously held by Guy Mason, son of Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, who first wing-walked in 2001 aged 11.
