Daredevils Gladys Roy and Ivan Unger play tennis up high on a plane in 1925
Tennis? On an airplane? As impossible as this looks daredevils Gladys Roy and Ivan Unger actually played a game of tennis on the wings of a plane. Or at the very least they stood on the wings of a plane and hit a ball at one another. Known as “wingwalkers” and “barnstormers” these two daredevils regularly performed high flying stunts at events like state fairs and places where huge crowds could see things go wrong. According to reporting at the time the two men were hitting serves and volleys to one another which is absolutely mind boggling, and even though there was a pilot there was no umpire.
