Scenic AIrways Fokker Universal
Scenic Airways was incorporated
in 1932 in Pocatello, Idaho, primarily to conduct aerial tours
of Yellowstone National
Park. One of its machines is seen above in this shot from the F.
courtesy of Mrs. Joan Lynch. The individuals apparently comprised
several members of the Pocatello
Cardinals baseball team (which at the time had no association
with the St. Louis team of the
same name,although would, indeed, become part of their farm
system later on)..
Possibly the team had chartered the Fokker at the time. In 1928
an earlier company operating out
Lake City (later Phoenix, Arizona)
also named Scenic
Airways flying a couple of Ford
Trimotors which provided tours of the Grand Canyon. This
concern, started by Parker Van
Zandt was renamed Grand Canyon Airways in
Airways above was started by Dr. W.W.
Brothers and two others and the Chief Pilot
was F.H."Chris" Christensen who
originally took the photo seen
here. This Scenic was
February 1932 and dissolved in November 1936.
