Shah takes smallest wingwalker title

The four foot, two inches (1.2 metres) star, who has appeared in the Lord of the Rings and Indiana Jones franchises, braved high speeds to step out on the wing of a plane at 1,000 feet (300 metres) to earn the title.

He says, “It was great, I loved it but next time I’ll pick a warmer day. It was very cold up there. The wind was coming at me all the time and I could hardly lift my arms because of the g-force.

“I was nervous until I had the safety briefing. Once I know what I’m doing it’s okay – it’s the same with any stunt. I’m not bothered by heights because I’ve done high falls before. Flying is no problem for me either. I love any kind of action. The more dangerous the better.”
