2/14/2011 - NIAGARA FALLS AIR RESERVE STATION, NY -- Neither words nor any other medium can wholly convey the attacks of September 11th 2001. On that day, thousands of families were left broken forever, and a nation was brought to its knees.

On September 10-11th 2011, the Thunder of Niagara airshow, held at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station, NY is slated to honor the memory of those affected ten years ago in the September 11th attacks.

The airshow's official logo, a somber silhouette of the New York City skyline that once included the Twin Towers, appropriately includes the phrase "Honoring Our Heroes."

The logo was conceptualized by the Niagara Military Affairs Council, comprised of members in the local community as well as members of Niagara Air Reserve Station, to honor the theme of this airshow.

"This airshow is more important than any other we've done," said Capt. Ben Canetti, Director of the 2011 Thunder of Niagara Air Show and Niagara Military Affairs Council member. "It's main purpose will be to remember those who were lost and to give notoriety to others who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty."

Mr. John Cooper, owner of Cooper Sign and the NIMAC vice chairman said, "The inspiration for this event and the logo centered around the profound way in which September 11, 2001 changed all of our lives forever."

The logo shows the skyline of New York with the 11 depicting the towers that fell that day. Those involved in the design felt that "remembrance" was a better word than "anniversary" to describe this coming September 11th as we honor the heroes of that day.

"It is our hope that this logo and the event it represents lead all of us to remember that day ten years ago and the lives that were taken and changed forever," said Mr. Cooper.

The artwork and design of the logo were the work of Janelle Pierce a graphic designer with Cooper Sign Company Inc., Niagara Falls NY.
