Daredevil pilots dice with death for stunt

AVIATION

Two daredevil pilots have achieved a world first after flying through a hangar at the same time.

Britons Paul Bonhomme and Steve Jones were one metre off the ground and their aircraft wings almost within touching distance as they zoomed into the building at 185mph and out the other side.

The stunt, at Llanbedr Airfield in Wales, was inspired by the "barnstorming pilots" of the 1900s. Bonhomme is a two-time Red Bull Air Race world champion.
