Organizers said, "Air Force air shows are valuable community events that increase public awareness and understanding of the armed forces and the mission, policies and programs of the United States Air Force. Military air shows support recruiting by inspiring patriotism and encouraging young men and women to serve in the military. In addition, we at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station like to host air shows as a way to thank the community for their never-ending support of the base."
