'Wing Walker' Dies at Mich. Air Show

A “wing walker” died at a Michigan air show Sunday after losing his balance while attempting to move midair from his airplane to a helicopter. He was making his third attempt to transfer from the wing of his biplane when he fell 200 feet to his death. Separately, a stunt pilot died at a Kansas City, Mo., air show when his aircraft plummeted nose first into the ground.
