Aled Jones to walk in the air for Global’s charity 

By | Published on Wednesday 15 August 2018

Classic FM presenter Aled Jones is going to raise money for Make Some Noise – a charity initiative run by the station’s owner Global – by doing some wing walking. Which, of course, is where you walk on the wings of a flying plane.

Which means – yeah, you got it – Jones will be walking in the air. Walking in the air! You know, because a young Jones famously launched his career by not singing ‘Walking In The Air’ in the 1982 animated film of Raymond Briggs’ book ‘The Snowman’.

And now he’ll be actually walking in the air! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!

“I can be a nervous flyer at the best of times – and that’s when I’m sitting inside the plane!” says Jones. “To fly at up to 130mph standing on top of the plane is going to be a very different experience, but I’m up for the challenge and I want to be put through my paces. It’s all in aid of a fantastic charity, Global’s Make Some Noise. I’ve seen first-hand the difference they make helping disadvantaged young people, so the challenge will be worth it”.

Think about it. He’ll actually be walking in the air! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
