Maria Pikulski Wing Walks
Blind veteran Maria Pikulski completes a wing walk.
In September 2012, blind veteran Maria Pikulski completed a wing walk at Breighton Aerodrome, Selby, North Yorkshire.
With friends and family watching Maria walked on the wing of the 'Utterly Butterly' biplane.
Maria, from Preston, joined the Women's Royal Army Corps and the Territorial Army, before suffering dramatic sight loss from Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy in 2003.
Maria decided to take on the daring challenge as a way to thank a number of charities that have helped her over the years, which included Blind Veterans UK who have supported her for over 10 years.
With the support of Blind Veterans UK, Maria has taken part in a number of sports and outdoor activities including skiing, running the London Marathon and has participated in our 100k challenge a number of times.
