Doing the Charleston

1927: 10-year-old Mildred Unger dances the Charleston on the wing of an airplane, while it's flying in the air.

Luckily she wasn't carrying a dangerous weapon like a plastic knife too!

I wonder if we could force all these child protection service people to watch this they'd go catatonic and leave good honest folk alone?

I've been on a few flights when I wished that annoying passengers could have been banished to sit on the wing like that.

Wow! You are right, CPS would stroke out!

CPS should stroke out -- that was bloody dangerous. If you follow the next video that comes up, it is a recent video for an adult wing walker who fell to his death. As far as I could see, that wasn't a fake film and that little girl had no harness or anything. Even by the standards of the day, her guardians should have been shot.

In my jurisdiction, you can no longer work on a roof without a harness or restraining fence, and you can't work off a ladder anymore either. That's how I was able to obtain employment for years -- not enough people were willing to do that. But you'd never have gotten me onto the wing of an airplane, even with a harness.

And at my age, you'd have a hard time getting me back on a roof.
