MPC-003 Wing Walker Jana Leigh Mcwhorter

Posted by on September 24, 2013

Wing Walking…….Yeah right!!   You won’t catch me climbing out of the cockpit of a perfectly good airplane and climbing all over it, but to Wing Walker Jana Leigh Mcwhorter, that’s an every day event for her.  You see these incredible people at just about all of the major airshows around the country.  The thrill and excitement of the danger involved has got to be one of the most adrenaline pumping activities there is.  I was able to catch up with Jana and talk to her about what it is like to crawl all over the wings and perform in front of thousands of people.   Jana has an incredible story and it was a pleasure getting the opportunity to interview her.   She performs a few times a month at an authentic flying circus that replicates the events from back in the 1920’s and 30’s.  Listen as Jana takes us through what it is like to be a Dare Devil Wing Walker.
