Drexon, glad you are doing well and want to visit the Falls. Let me know, I will show you what I can. There is a charter helicopter service in the area, and I have contacted them about night flights, cost, etc. They have not replied as of yet. But they do fly over this area, a day tour is easy. Same with a small plane. I don't have the $$ to do that. I agree that a weather phenomenon is POSSIBLE, but the one you mention, light pillars' is rare. Never mind recurring in the same area, over and over. This area it self is not super dense with population and bright lights. most of them are just in this area. When this story first broke, check the OP, people were reporting seeing an actual OBJECT. The video just does not cut it, I know. I picked up an older (analog) sony with nightshot and was able to get a better focussed shot of the flash. Will work feverishly in the next couple days to get my fingers on a converter OR if desperate, will play it on TV and record with camcorder, at the very least. I have lived around here all my life, work in town, and this just is absolutely crazy...
WEATHER We must have winds of 10 mph or less to safely fly. This is why we fly at the sunrise and sunset time frame. Thunderstorms are very dangerous and can kick out extremely strong winds up to 75 miles away. We do not fly if there are thunderstorms in Western N.Y. Even light rain showers can 'kick up' the winds. Safety is our #1 consideration! Passengers will call approximately 2 hours before their scheduled flight to get the weather update and pilot's decision to fly or not fly. Flights are canceled with everyone's safety in mind. (including ours!). Decisions to fly are never monetary and we have a perfect safety record. We fly May through mid October however the most dependable flying weather is June - August. Spring and fall weather can be windy and rainy and are the least dependable. October flights have a high cancellation rate (weather related) and subjected to an additional $10 per person fee.
