Wing Walker Tragedy at MI Air Show
A Michigan wing walker who fell to his death after trying to grab a helicopter's skid while standing on the fuselage of a small plane had performed the same maneuver successfully a number of times, according to a stunt pilot and former wing walker who once worked with him. "He's only one of two people to ever do that," Kyle Franklin said of Todd Green. "He was very good at it. I've seen him do that many, many times. "He was always on spot and did a very good job with everything he did." Green, of Ann Arbor, died Sunday after falling 200 feet from the plane during an annual air show at Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Harrison Township, about 20 miles northeast of Detroit. His death came a day after two pilots died in separate crashes at air shows in Missouri and England.
