Essex mason David Todd, 53, went airborne for charity, allowing himself to be strapped to the top of a Boeing-Stearman biplane, travelling at speeds of more than 130mph as the plane circled the Essex countryside

‘I had to lose two stone before they would let me fly. I was nervous to start with, and it was the most uncomfortable seat I’ve ever sat on,’ said David, who raised almost £1,700 for the Essex 2022 Festival appeal.
