Aero car swings above The Whirlpool at a sharp right bend of Niagara Gorge 3 miles below the Falls. Here the river, churning down the 300-foot-wide passage at 25 miles an hour, flings its savage current against the Canadian bank (left) and forms a giant swirl. This tramway stretches 1,708 feet between two stations in Canada, dipping to 150 feet above the water. Translucent waters of LunaFalls spray visitors on Hurricane Deck near the former Cave of the Winds. No tourists have been permitted behind the water curtain since 1920, when falling rock killed three persons. The cave no longer exists. 579 NATIONALGEOGRAPHIC SIA-I ) N.O.J.
