To celebrate the base was removed from the initial BRAC list,
as well as "USAF at sixty", Niagara Falls opened its gates to
the public, which came in vast numbers. The main apron north
of the main east-west runway was used for both static display
and flight lines. Static was typical with no fencing at all,
allowing checking some construction numbers. The air show
had to be viewed from the north side of the runway as well. As
light conditions were far from ideal after 10.00am, our local
reporter left the base to a private spot along Walmore Rd,
which runs east of the base. Although a bit close to the
centreline of the main runway, this proved to be a good choice.
Weather conditions deteriorated considerably Sunday
afternoon, forcing the Thunderbirds to cut off their afternoon
performance in a downpour.
