“Man on Wire” – Featuring Philippe Petit
On Wednesday, 7 August 1974, shortly after 7:15 a.m., Philippe Petit stepped off the South Tower and onto his 3/4" 6×19 IWRC (independent wire rope core) steel cable. He walked the wire for 45 minutes, making eight crossings between the towers, a quarter of a mile above the sidewalks of Manhattan.
