Two daredevils have shown off their skills above the skies of some of Dubai’s most famous landmarks.

The British Breitling Wingwalkers, Danielle Hughes and Emily Guilding, flew 1,500 feet above The Palm, Jumeirah at speeds of more than 100mph.

The daredevil duo set to appear at the 2014 UIM Skydive Dubai XCAT World Powerboating Series on Saturday.

The British team is the only aerobatic formation display team who have full time wingwalkers and fly their two Breitling-liveried 1930s Boeing Stearman bi-planes at Air Shows and major sporting events around the world.
