Record-breaking aerial tea break.
Corporal Stewart Hefti, who recovered from serious leg injuries sustained in Basra two years ago, flew as a passenger during the stunt, as part of a fundraising initiative for RAF personnel and their families.
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.
But with help from the Regional Rehabilitation Unit at RAF Honington, Suffolk, Cpl Hefti overcame his injuries and was able to rejoin colleagues in Afghanistan earlier this year.
The serviceman made his bid at the RAF Museum Cosford, near Wolverhampton.
