The Thunder of Niagara Air Show is being held this weekend at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station and will be dedicated to the sacrifices made by first responders and American troops during and after the September 11th terrorist attacks against the United States. The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds aerial demonstration team is the headline performer of the air show this weekend, weather permitting. However, if bad weather does ground the planes, the displays on the ground will include a jet-car, vintage aircrafts and other aviation-related materials. Admission to the show is free with the gates and attractions opening at 9 a.m. each day. Metro buses will provide free shuttle service from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday between the air show and the free parking lot located at the Inducon/Vantage Industrial Park off Lockport Road, east of Walmore Road in Wheatfield. The air base is home to the U.S. Air Force Reserve's 914th Airlift Wing and the New York National Guard's 107th Airlift Wing.
