Acrobatic couple criticised for performing stunt just inches away from landing plane


AN acrobat performs a handstand on her partner’s head — taking her feet inches from a cargo plane as it lands.

Ukrainians Oleg Kolisnichenko, 36, and Yulia Nos, 25, have been blasted for the “stupid stunt” on Maho Beach, which lies next to the main airport on the Caribbean island of Saint Martin.

The stunt was met with criticism rather than praise from social media users

The duo, who have been performing together for three years, were keen to take the souvenir snap having just reached the end of a cruise.

But despite the impressive timing the stunt was met with criticism rather than praise from social media users.

Daredevil Yulia, from Kiev, Ukraine, said: “We absolutely love acrobatics and we like to have fun with it outside of work.

“The beach really is dangerous yet exciting at the same time.

“A lot of people were taking pictures with a plane above their heads but we had some idea to make something cool.

“After a few tries we managed to perform it as the plane arrived but we didn’t expect it to be so big and so close to us.

“It didn’t touch my feet but I felt so much air from the plane and I lost my balance.
