Professional wingwalker since 2004
Libby started wingwalking in 2004 when the team was sponsored by Utterly Butterly. In 2008 she qualified as an Airline Pilot and took a break away to fly private jets all around Europe. Deciding that commercial flying didn’t involve nearly enough loops for her, she is out of the cockpit and back up on the wing again and is loving every minute of it!
Libby comes from a family of pilots so aviation is in her blood. She even married an RAF Typhoon pilot who she met whilst performing at Duxford Airshow!
Away from aviation, Libby recently returned to the UK after 5 years living in the Middle East. It was there that she discovered a love for scuba diving. She also enjoys playing squash and skiing. Sport has always been a really big part of Libby’s life and she enjoys keeping fit – something that proves to be very useful when pulling 4G at the bottom of a loop!
Libby’s favourite part of wingwalking is the amazing weightless feeling at the very top of a stall turn – a lovely moment of peace before roaring back into 100mph again!
