This 94-year-old showed there was plenty of life in him yet after he became the first person to wingwalk from Land’s End to the Scilly Isles.

Flying at 1,500ft and reaching speeds of 90mph, it took Tom Lackey 40 minutes to complete the feat.

‘I get a kick out of it,’ the pensioner from Birmingham said.

‘My daughter thinks I’m mad.’

Mr Lackey was raising money for the Stroke Association and British Heart Foundation, in memory of his wife who died 14 years ago.
