It amazes me that any other suspension act except Coperfield's Flying even gets a second glance in 2014.

That there wouldn't be wires seems so ridiculous that to even bother to pay for and assemble the massive infrastructure required to hang between two "shards" seems a waste of time.
People are a bit more clued in to engineering possibilities these days than people like Dynamo and Mr. Angel seem prepared to acknowledge.

With DC's Flying effect, it's not the fact that he's apparently ... well, flying that's so impressive, it's the craft and artistic thinking that has gone into what's happening while he's flying that draws the viewer in.

In 2014, hanging between a couple of structural elements, with your arms outstretched like Jesus Christ borders on the inane.

So after a whole weekend to come up with an excuse, they have said "it was just a rehearsal".

Would have thought they could have been more creative than that!
