A daring 87-year-old has taken to the skies – to become Britain’s oldest female WING-WALKER.
Brave Betty Bromage was strapped to the wings of an 1944 Boeing-Stearman during the death-defying stunt.
The pensioner raised over £1,100, with all the money going to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
She said: “I had a wonderful time, and being a retired nurse, am happy to support the Air Ambulance in their work that I have seen first hand. I am now looking for my next challenge.”
Margaret Winterbourne, who works at Abbeyfield House where Betty lives, said: “Betty enjoyed the exhilaration of her flight over the local countryside, while her family, friends and fellow residents looked on with apprehension, then relief when she landed safely and happily.”
Susie Godwin, Fundraising Manager for the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity in Gloucestershire, said: “This is a wonderful challenge that Betty Bromage undertook on July 8, and we are very grateful to Betty, her family and friends for bringing in much needed funds to keep our Air Ambulance operational, 365 days a year, Saving Lives by Saving Time”.
