Jay Cochrane, the world's premiere high wire walker, completes his first skywalk of the summer in Niagara Falls, Canada, on Thursday, July 6, 2007 as he passes by the Skylon Tower. Cochrane will skywalk twice daily on the 1,000 foot long wire between his two specially made 200 foot tall towers (20 stories). In the ten-week schedule, Cochrane will walk over 20 miles on the wire. Called "Up Close and Personal with Jay Cochrane," the skywalks are an effort to secure permission for Cochrane to skywalk over Niagara Falls.
