Notes  "On July 4, 1928, " Sky View Lines, " inaugurated sightseeing flights, at night, over the " Niagara Falls. " The pilot, Major Leach, flying a " Ford Tri-Motor Airplane, " took off in the dark and in a few moments was over the " Falls "... the mighty " Horseshoe " clothed in rainbow shades... seemed only a few feet away. The " American Falls " were resplendent in white lights, while a white searchlight played on the big plane, which had the appearance of a mighty silver fish, while the moon looked on. Fifty people made the trip that night, among the earliest tourists to see the illuminated Falls, from the air. " Sky View Lines" had their landing field just south of " Chippawa, " on the " Niagara River Boulevard. F. H.Leslie Niagara Falls Review"
