London, Aug 19 (ANI): An eight-year-old boy is hoping to become the youngest person in the world to wing-walk.iger Brewer, from London, will be taking to the skies on the wing of his grandfather's biplane.

His grandfather is Vic Norman, who operates the only formation wing-walking team in the world.

Tiger will be soaring through the skies in Gloucestershire at 100mph and flying high at about 1,000 feet.

His mum, Zoe, is completely unfazed by what her son is up to.

"My siblings and I have all grown up doing all sorts of weird things and I wouldn't let him do it if I didn't think it was perfectly safe," Sky News quoted her as saying.

"He's with my father and I trust him absolutely," she added.

Tiger, meanwhile, is 'excited, and a teeny bit nervous - and happy'.

"I've stood on a biplane but I've never flown on one," he said.

The world record is presently held by Guy Mason, son of Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, who first wing-walked in 2001 at the age of 11.

Norman is hopeful his grandson will fly into the record books.

"It will be wonderful to fly with Tiger on my wing, he shares my passion for flying and it will be a very special experience for us both," he said. (ANI)
