Incredible Footage of a 10 Year-Old Girl Dances the Charleston 2,000 FT in the Air on the Wing of an Airplane, 1927

Before the onset of the Great Depression, the Roaring Twenties were a time of economic prosperity, new technology and perhaps most famously, dancing. Here, 10-year-old Mildred Unger takes one of the hippest dance crazes of the time to the skies as she performs the Charleston on the wing of an airplane in 1927!

Meet Mildred Unger. In this footage taken in 1927, she’s just 10 years old.

But just because she’s 10, doesn’t mean she’s not fearless. Here she is getting into a plane... she can stand on its wings without any apparent safety gear on. She is doing this so...

...she can dance the Charleston 2,000 feet in the air.

You might want to hold your breath as you watch this incredible footage.

  1. Mildred Rocks! I believe there is also a video of her riding on top of a hot-air balloon.
