Gladys Ingles was a member of a barnstorming troupe called the 13 Black Cats in the 1920's.
Ingles was a wing walker .

She shows her fearlessness in classic barnstorming fashion to save an airplane that has lost one of its main wheels.

Ingles is shown with a replacement wheel being strapped to her back and then off she goes as "Up She Goes," a duet from the era, provides the soundtrack.




Ingles transfers herself from the rescue plane to the one missing the main landing gear tire.
She then expertly works herself down to the undercarriage only a few feet from a spinning prop.
It's certainly a feat many mechanics wouldn't even try on the ground with the engine running.
