THE WORLD’S oldest wingwalker, Tom Lackey, is planning his next record breaker; a wingwalk across the Irish Sea.

The 92-year-old, from Shirley, already holds six world records for wing walking including being the oldest person to loop-the-loop and wing walk across the English Channel. Now Tom is eager to add to his collection by being the first to wingwalk from Scotland to Ireland next spring.

The grandfather, who has already raised £800,000 for charity, is also hoping the latest stunt will help him reach £1million.
