A new star of the air show

First published in Opinion

TOM Lackey is 94 and has already done quite a few things most of us would never dream of attempting.

He began wingwalking 14 years ago and hasn’t looked back - or down, since. He once looped the loop on a wing and holds numerous world records. Tom will be getting the seventh Bournemouth Air Festival off to a flying start when he signals the beginning of the displays by wingwalking between the piers on the Thursday afternoon.

The countdown to the land, sea and air extravaganza is under way.

And we predict Tom will be one of the real stars of the show.
