Article Photos: Soaring over the Thames: Cable Car takes flight 1/5

  Transport for London's gondola lift cable cars are seen across the River Thames, London, Thursday, June 28, 2012. The cable car will make the half-mile (one kilometer) crossing between Greenwich and the Royal Docks, allowing visitors to take in the views of Olympic Park, the Canary Wharf financial center and the Thames Barrier. Each of the 34 cars holds 10 people and looks like the gondolas that ferry skiers up the mountains in the Swiss Alps. Travelers can go one way or round-trip, with a one-way ticket costing 3.20 pounds (5 US dollars). (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)
