Harry Elkington manned-up when he volunteered for a cut-throat shave flying at one-mile high and at break-neck speed.

Janine Wheeler had been learning to fly with Take Flight Aviation, Wellesbourne Airfield, and with its help came up with the idea of a wet shave to promote the male grooming at her new salon Sintra Hair Plus, Fenny Compton.

Customer Harry, who lives in Oxfordshire, said: “I wasn’t too worried until I saw the razor, but Josie Waller performed the shave without a single nick.”

Josie, a stylist at Fenny Compton, said: “There were a few bumps, but the pilots were great at keeping the aircraft very still despite travelling at about 150mph.”

The stunt was sponsored by The Shave Doctor shaving products brand and it can be seen at
