This is Blue Peter, but mini. Expect epic adventures, makes,
bakes, badges, pets, presenters, and your post.
We've only got five minutes, so get ready for your Blue Peter adventure.
Wow! Oh, goodness, Radzi. What are you doing?
-It's challenge time, Linds, and I am ready!
-No, I can see that.
Why are you wearing that? I didn't think we were getting
changed till later, plus we haven't actually said what
the challenge is.
You mean I didn't have to wear this on the way here?
I did think people were noticing me.
Well, the reason Radzi is wearing this is cos we're about to do this.
That's right. We're going to try wing walking,
which involves standing on the wings of a plane, whilst it's in mid-air.
And helping us do that is the world's only formation
wing walking display team.
Three words, my friends. Bring it on.
'We're going to attempt a classic manoeuvre, the Loop the Loop.
'We will each be strapped to a plane...' Really tighten those.
'..and whilst flying in formation,
'we'll perform a perfect loop in the sky.'
As we hit takeoff speed, the noise is just unbelievable!
And a 150mph wind does pretty strange things to our faces!
It's time for our pilots to begin the loop.
They start by diving the planes to help us gain speed.
Then, we begin to climb.
Oh, my goodness!
That was the best thing I've ever done in my life!
I feel like I genuinely need to come to terms with... Wow! I mean...
I'm lost for words. I'm not usually lost for words.
I'm properly lost for words!
I've never, genuinely, in my whole Blue Peter career,
-I've never been that terrified, excited, happy...
-All the emotions.
-Everything at once.
-That's why it was a BP Challenge.
-We've done it.
Challenge over! Yes!
'Er... You didn't think that was the Challenge, did you?'
'What you're actually here for today is to take on Blue Peter's
'iconic wing walking challenge.
'You must pass a one-metre baton to each other while strapped to
'the wings of two planes.
'Oh, and Lindsey, you're the one going upside down.'
This is a ridiculous challenge. I watched this challenge when we
used to watch Blue Peter growing up and they've always failed.
-So, now, the pressure's on.
-Third time lucky.
-And you know what's going to help?
-Happy dance, as I walk off.
-No, don't you dare.
'Can we succeed? Well, if we can, it will be
'with the help of our pilots, Martin and Dave.'
So, guys, how exactly are we going to do this? How does it work?
Well, basically, what we're going to do is we're going to fly two
vintage biplanes in formation.
We're going to fly one above the other, in perfect alignment,
and then, as we're there, you're going to be standing on the
wing and passing that baton across to Radzi.
-I will not be calm, by the way.
I'll be honest, I've done a lot of Blue Peter Challenges, but
there's a difference with this one because this one isn't on my own.
I've got to do this and work as a team with Radzi and I really,
really, really don't want to let him down.
'We only have around three attempts to get this right because there's a
'limit to the number of times that I can hold the baton up
'in 120mph winds.'
-Blue Peter history!
-Let's do it!
-Let's do it!
Once in the air, Martin and Dave begin to manoeuvre us
into position for our first attempt.
They need to be so exact in their flying.
We swoop in to position, trying to match the speed of Lindsey's plane.
We're just not close enough.
SPEECH DROWNED OUT
We line up for our second try.
We're definitely closer. Are we going to do it?
I just don't know if we're ever going to get this right.
I'm starting to struggle. My arms are in agony.
This is our last chance.
I wait until the last second and then hold the baton as high
as I possibly can.
Every inch of me is willing us to get closer. Just come on!
-We've done it!
We did it!
Oh, hands down, the best day of my life!
Can we just say, that was down to these absolutely legendary pilots.
-Yeah, it was.
-Dave and Martin.
What skill, what control, Blue Peter history!
