Lincoln Beachey Flying Under Honeymoon Bridge 1911

Lincoln Beachey's plane is a bit hard to make out, he seems to be right in the mist. He landed on the Canadian side of the river where he collected the $1,000.00 he earned for this stunt The bridge collapsed a few year later from ice that formed in Lake Erie upstream from Niagara Falls, when it broke up there was so much ice moving down stream it caused the bridge to collapse.
