WING WALKING With Mark BassanT & David Graeme

The Province of East Kent is proud to present the first of our Dare Devil experiences.

Come and join us for a day of thrills and excitement, linked with highs and lows and a few somersaults in between.

Our very own APGM's Mark Bassant and David Graeme will be leading from front on this event along with other distinguished Provincial Executive Officers on this Dare Devil adventure in the aid of the 2025 Festival.

Wing walking is that sort of experience. Really only for the daredevils amongst you, it is a thoroughly exhilarating activity that is like nothing you will have ever done before. This experience isn't offered at many places in the UK, due to the specialist equipment and skills needed, but if you're prepared to travel to the airfield, we think it'll be totally worth it as you get ready to perch high up there above the cockpit, with your heart in your mouth ready for the ride of your life.
