The 914th Air Refueling Wing conducted a C-130H Hercules static aircraft unveiling ceremony at the Col. John Moriarty Memorial Air Park here, May 15, 2022.

Named after aircraft “914-1," the static display represents the pride and dedication of the men and women of the 914th as they flew and maintained this type airframe for over 40 years of operational service from 1971 to 2017.

The C-130 at Niagara has changed over the years starting with the C-130A, E, and finally the H model. Major campaigns included Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, and the Global War on Terrorism.

Current and past wing leadership, base personnel, civic and community leaders, attended the ceremony.
