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. got the story behind the stunt and produced this video with interviews and old footage.

As fun as it looks, I think I’ll stay in the cockpit. 🙂


  1. Another great opportunity to cite George Carlin… “I’m getting IN the plane! Let Evel Knievel get ON the plane”

Don't just sit there... Say something!
