WING AND A PLAYER

All About History - - CONTENTS -

Dare­devil avi­a­trix Gla­dys Roy en­joys a game of ten­nis at 3,000 feet with Ivan Unger. It was one of Roy’s most fa­mous wing-walk­ing stunts, along with danc­ing the Charleston, but was purely panto – ob­vi­ously there was no ball in­volved but it was a heck of a show. Trag­i­cally Roy, who also claimed the world record for the low­est para­chute jump, died only two years later after walk­ing into the spin­ning pro­pel­ler of a grounded air­craft.
