23 News Chats with a Wing Walker

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Talk about living life on the edge, a Harvard man flying during this year's air-fest is expected to wing his performance this weekend.

Wing Walker Tony Kazian literally does just that he climbs on top of planes while in flight and performs several acrobatic tricks. Kazian says his father was a wing walker for more than 40 years and he's been doing it for about 15 years.

Kazian said, "I don't know how many kids ever said that they wanted to do something at 8 years old and actually grew up and became that and I did and that says it all right there."

Kazian says the best way to describe the rush he gets in the air is to ride a rollercoaster without a seat belt.

Kazian will be performing at AirFest.
