    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Many visitors to Niagara Falls say one of the best ways to view the city is from the air.

    As such, Rob Roy Collins is looking forward to taking his first helicopter ride when he visits Niagara on Wednesday.

    The 33-year-old’s trip, however, will be a little different than most flights.

    The British daredevil will attempt to escape from a straitjacket while suspended by his ankles from a helicopter at Niagara Helicopters.

    “I am very excited to come over to Niagara, I have visited before as a tourist and I loved it. I am just hoping the helicopter pilot will treat me to a trip over the falls,” he said in an e-mail to The Review.

    Collins, who hails from northern England, will attempt the risky routine to promote the upcoming St. Catharines International Busker Festival.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The Honeymoon Capital wants to roll out the red carpet for Prince William and Kate Middleton after they tie the knot in April.

    Niagara Falls city hall plans to send a follow-up invitation to one it sent to the future king in December now that it appears certain the newlyweds will honeymoon in Canada, says Mayor Jim Diodati.

    “I can’t imagine they would come here on their honeymoon and not come to… the Honeymoon Capital,” the mayor said during Monday’s council meeting, the same day a British paper reported Canada will be the destination of newlyweds’ first international trip.
