Static aircraft displays undergo landscape improvements

NIAGARA FALLS AIR RESERVE STATION, N.Y. -- Contract workers perform construction work around static display aircraft here. A cement curb and pad is being poured to protect the aircraft.  The curbs will be completed this year and the pads will be poured weather permitting.  The curbs after being poured are covered with heating blankets until the cement cures.  The aircraft are on loan from the National Museum United States Air Force. It is the base's responsibility to maintain display aircraft and to report on their condition annually.
