Flying in any plane can be terrifying for some but imagine flying at speed of 130mph, 2,500 feet in the air on the wing of a plane? Well, our colleague Darren Bullows won’t have to wonder much longer as he is taking on the Wing Walk Challenge for Primrose Hospice.
On the 15th of August 2019, Darren will be strapped in and take off from RFC Redcomb Airfield in Cirencester, Gloucestershire. The Aerosuperbatics will be putting the Boeing Stearman bi-plane through its paces as it climbs, banks and dives with Darren attached.
Primrose Hospice is an independent charity that provides care and advice to patients living with life-limiting illnesses. The hospice also provides support services to the family of patients including counselling services, complementary therapy, advice and more.
Darren’s Wing Walk will help raise much-needed funds towards the £1.75 million needed each year for the charity to provide all the free services to those who require them. Whether that is care to patients or support to families, the work they do is vital in those tough times.
Darren is carrying out the Wing Walk in memory of his father-in-law Sean who sadly passed away in October last year. We would be grateful if you could help our colleague Darren out by sharing or donating Darren’s Just Giving page that has been set up:
