    The Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station will host the best air show this area has ever seen. The air show will be headlined by the world famous United States Air Force Thunderbirds. There will also be exclusive military aircraft flybys. The show will also feature the largest military & civilian static aircraft display in New York State. You don't want to miss this

    Scheduled to appear:

    USAF Thunderbirds - “The USAF Air Demonstration Squadron (“Thunderbirds”) is the air demonstration squadron of the United States Air Force (USAF) - TENTATIVE

    Canadian Forces Snowbirds - “The Canadian Forces (CF) Snowbirds, 431 Air Demonstration Squadron are a Canadian icon comprised of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF)

    F-22 Raptor - “The Air Combat Command F-22 Demonstration Team at Langley Air Force Base performs precision aerial maneuvers to demonstrate the unique capabilities of the world’s only operational fifth-generation fighter aircraft.

    VFA-106 “Super Hornet” Demo - Strike Fighter Squadron 106 from Naval Air Station Oceana, Virginia is proud to showcase the F/A-18. The Tactical Demonstration or “Tac Demo” team flies the F/A-18 as close to the “edge of the envelope” as safety and prudence allow

    “Quick Silver” P-51D Mustang - Come relish in this Mustang’s distinctive roar courtesy of a full-tilt aerobatic demonstration by Scott Yoak

    C-17 Globemaster III Tactical Flying Demonstration - This one-of-a-kind demo comes courtesy of the 105th Airlift Wing. Niagara is proud to be one of the few North American Air Shows to host this astounding aerial demonstration

    • C-17 Take Off  “Crank and Bank” … 250,000+ Pounds in the Sky!  It’s difficult to sum up the C-17 in just word and pictures. In short, the C-17 demo team will redefine “Crank & Bank” as they move 250,000+ pounds of airplane across the skies of Niagara. Heck, even fighter pilots are left slack-jawed by the C-17’s maneuverability.
