Wallenda still working on wire logistics
From the London Free Press:
Nik Wallenda is set to walk across the Niagara Gorge on a wire in eight days, but first he has to figure out how he’s going to get the wire from one side of the Niagara River to the other.
The logistics of stringing the 550-metre wire from Goat Island in the U.S. to Table Rock in Canada are proving to be more difficult than Wallenda first thought.
To get the 18-tonne wire across the gorge, a guide line first has to be moved from one side to the other. The plan was originally to use a helicopter for the task.
But Niagara Helicopters has had to bow out because it wasn’t given enough time to get the paperwork it needed, said Anna Pierce, the company’s vice-president.
