Corporal targets tea record; ADVENTURE.
Corporal Stewart Hefti, who recovered from serious leg injuries sustained in Basra two years ago, will fly as a passenger during the stunt, as part of a fundraising initiative for RAF personnel and their families.
The serviceman will launch his eccentric record bid on Thursday at the RAF Museum Cosford, near Wolverhampton.
Cpl Hefti, 27, was on patrol with First Squadron, RAF Regiment, in 2007 when his unit came under fire, killing one of his fellow gunners.
Flying the plane will be former RAF Red Arrows team leader Andy Offer, now a pilot with UK aerobatic team The Blades.
