I can't say enough good about the air show and the on-base support personnel for the show. The problem is getting to the show and parking. We were coming from Rochester, and all was well till we were within a few miles of the base. A sign said, "Air show take Rt. 429 to Lockport Rd." So we did, and traffic almost immediately came to a halt. We were then re-routed two more times after that. We ended up parking in the SPCA field for $5 and walking nearly 1 mi more to the base. And then you have to wait in line for the security check. From that turn on to 429 to actually getitng on to the base was nearly an hour and a half.
Police personnel did nothing to help the traffic or the parking situation; there were no police personnel directing traffic. In short, traffic and parking were very poorly handled by organizers.
Give yourself more time than you think you'll need to get there, be prepared to walk, and bring extra money because the concessions are expensive.
