The wife of the aerobatics pilot that taught my grandfather how to fly back in the 30s was a wing walker.

One of our pilots fell of the top of a Bell 412 doing a pre-flight. Fucked him up good.

I used to check the engine oil on the Twin Otter by walking out the wing and climbing on the nacelle.   Never fell off, but always had butterflies when i did it.    

Jumping out at 13,000 with a parachute never bothered me.  Being 15 feet up with nothing is no fun.
