A Word A Week Photo Challenge – Carry (Wing Walking)

I have quite a few photos that would have worked nicely for the Word a Week Photo Challenge – Carry but none grabbed me in the same way that the photos of this daredevil did. This daredevil is a woman who got on to the wings of the plane at the beginning of the performance (i.e., after the plane was in the air), which occur a few years ago at the Experimental Aircraft Association Annual Fly-in. Our daredevil stayed on the wings of the plane while it carried her through stunts that included a loop with a vertical climb, flying upside down (she was clearly attached firmly to the plane) and a rapid decent and fairly sharp pull up that must have had a “g” effect that added quite a bit of temporary new weight to her. The more distant images are not as clear as I would like, but the action was quite a distance away. I hope you enjoy this set of images of a plane carrying a daredevil on its wings. By the way, this activity is known as Wing Walking. For the life of me I cannot remember the name of these folks so that I can give them appropriate credit.

      Thanks. I am actually located in Madison, Wisconsin. It is the home of TDS, which was a small regional telephone company that has been purchasing very small local telephone companies for years and has gotten moderately large. I get my telephone and Internet services from TDS. Does TDS provide service in Tennessee as well?
