Back in 1976 some guys cooked up a publicity stunt involving a guy dressed up as the Amazing Human Fly standing on top of an airplane. Sure, wing walkers have been around since the days of the bi-plane, but these guys did it with a 4-engine DC-8 jet airliner.
AvWeb.com got the story behind the stunt and produced this video with interviews and old footage.
