Nine-year-old girls break wing-walking formation world record in Cirencester
TWO schoolgirls flew into the record books in Cirencester yesterday as the world's youngest wing-walking formation team.
Nine-year-old cousins Flame Brewer and Rose Towell, from London, were harnessed to two of their grandfather Vic Norman's 1942 Boeing Spearman aircrafts at RFC Rendcomb.
They flew at speeds of up to 100mph, just metres from each other and 500ft over the countryside.
Brave Rose said: " It felt like I was a little bird and I was flying above lots of little model houses and villages.

Flame added: "When they started up the engines and we went along the runway it was really bumpy but when we got in the air it was really good.
"I did lots of waving – it was too windy to do any other moves."
The girls are the third generation of their family to walk on the wings of the planes, and Flame's big brother Tiger holds the world record for the youngest wing-walker, which he achieved in 2009, aged eight.
