On Tuesday, August 18, 2009 Tiger Brewer from Cirencester, Gloucestershire broke a world record by being the world's youngest wingwalker at age eight. The previous world record was held by Guy who wingwalked at age eleven in 2001. Tiger Brewer was strapped to the top of his grandfather's Boeing Spearman bi-plane that reached speeds of 100 mph at 1,000 feet.

Tiger Brewer said "I want to do it again now. It really was amazing. The only thing hurt was the windburn."
