Chief White Eagle Flies Through The Air Suspended By His Hair

(Video Link)

Stunt performers, magicians and body modification fanatics use their bodies in grisly and dangerous ways to wow audiences and make big bucks nowadays, but they all act like they’re the first ones to attempt such a death defying feat.

Chief White Eagle was staring death in the sockets without a care for his own life, flying through the air suspended by his hair, in the 1920s.This newsreel footage was taken in the 1920s and shows the Chief, billed as "the man with the world's strongest head of hair" dangling by his locks far above the ground in an insane airplane stunt he performed with the famous aerial stunt squad the 13 Flying Black Cats.

Chief White Eagle later died doing what he loved, when his hair failed to hold his weight as he performed an aerial stunt dangling from a plane, but he’s truly the first death defying stuntman with a rock star image, and all performers who perform similar stunts nowadays owe Chief White Eagle a tip of the hat.
