The plane used by Austrian wing walker Peggy Krainz.

Peggy Krainz getting ready for her wingwalking performance. The technical details of her plane are: 1942 Boeing Stearman, open two seater biplane with a 9 cylinder – 450 hp Pratt & Witney radial (the original version had a 220 hp engine).
Wing walking was a big attraction in the flying circuses of the 1930s.
The wingwalker climbs out of the front seat and then hangs in various poses between the upper and lower wing. At one point she stood on top of the plane which then did a complete loop-de-loop.
A nice touch for the finale for Peggy Krainz at Al Ain.

Close up of the falcon.
This falcon was so calm, the baby was patting it and the falcon didn't turn a hair, sorry, feather. Mum wasn't entirely keen on the idea though not surprisingly.
Just a shell, it didn't even have a roll cage but good to see all the same.
