The Valentine's Day wing walk - taking off from Dunkeswell airport, near Honiton - will raise funds for Hospiscare.

The high-flying challenge will take place on Friday and Saturday February 14 and 15 and again on July 21.

A spokeswoman for the charity said: "Those who are seeking a thrilling way to bring in the New Year can sign up."
