But that's not the way husband and wife Nik and Erendira Wallenda like to see Niagara Falls. She used a Hula-Hoop-type device to hang from the helicopter as it flew 300 feet above the Falls. Wallenda spent about eight minutes of the 10-minute stunt hovering over the falls.

Five years ago today, Nik Wallenda walked 550 metres on a tightrope over the falls, from the American to the Canadian side. Legislators thanked the couple for bringing such unique talent and world-renowned acts to Niagara Falls. At one point she'll hang from her toes. "I know her ability, I know how strong she is, she trains insane hours, harder than I do, so I know that she's going to be successful in flying".

A woman plans to do a death-defying stunt on live TV.

As promised, Erendira Wallenda balanced from a hoop dangling from a helicopter high above Niagara Falls Thursday morning and landed back at the Seneca Niagara Casino and Resort at a few minutes before 9 a.m.

Wallenda said she hoped her performance would inspire others - and she offered a special message for other females.

"Sometimes it takes a little longer in this region to make things happen", said Wallenda, who encountered resistance from some corners of city government to his initial, and successful stunt over the Falls in 2012.

Nik described his wife's performance Thursday as "absolutely unbelievable".

"Obviously, my dentist doesn't want me to do this for the rest of my life", she said. The Wallendas are scheduled to go on a 2 ½-month tour with the Big Apple Circus in October, Nik Wallenda said. That, and bringing valuable publicity to Niagara Falls, New York.

Erendira told reporters afterward that "it felt amazing" to be high above the Falls, but she wasn't expecting it to be so windy.
