My story

[p]Now Thursday 26th September[/p][p]11.30 - First Wing Walk[/p][p]14.30 ish - Second Aero Wing Walk with Loop the Loop and Barrel Roll for FSDP.[/p][p]Bodmin Airfield [/p][p][i]Bodmin, Cornwall PL30 4BU[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p]UPDATE: . It is imperative that an aircraft used for public flights is absolutely sound and conforming to the stringent regulations that prevail. Safety is paramount.[/p][p]The problem, a faulty tail-wheel, has now been sent away and will return as soon as it has been reconditioned. Tail-wheels for a Boeing Stearman are very rare and hard to find even in America, where they were built, so the current one will be rebuilt.[/p][p]The sheer frustration for us all is immense ... to ensure Bodmin Airfield will get their Wing Walking schedule completed this year we will plan to operate in the first two weeks of September.(Dates to be confirmed).[/p][p]Once again I can only apologise for this enormous inconvenience and assure you that we will keep forging ahead until you have all achieved your aims... to wing walk over Cornwall on top of a Boeing Stearman aircraft.[/p][p]I am disappointed to see the date move, but I promise you I am committed to completing this challenge for FSDP.[/p][p]I will be undertaking the challenge of a loop the loop and barrel roll wing walk in September (original date 4th July) to raise money for Flying Scholarships for Disabled People (FSDP).[/p][p]100% of money raised will go directly towards a future scholarship. My target is £5,000 to fund the future scholar's flying hours. I will be covering the cost of the wingwalk myself.[/p][p]FSDP’s mission is to inspire disabled adults, building their confidence, self-esteem and future aspirations through the sharing of life changing aviation experiences.[/p][p] [/p][p]The charity have helped me personally, I was ready to give up on my aspiration for a career within aviation, without them, I would not be where I am today.[/p][p] To find out more about the charity and my story follow the links below:[/p][p] [url=https://www.fsdp.co.uk/]https://www.fsdp.co.uk/[/url] [/p][p] [url=http://www.fsdp.co.uk/scholar-stories/bethany-colburn/]http://www.fsdp.co.uk/scholar-stories/bethany-colburn/[/url][/p][p] [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5MB8JMOXgQ]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5MB8JMOXgQ[/url] [/p]
