The NFTA Wins Big

The Buffalo Niagara International Airport hosted the 55th Annual Snow Symposium April 22-26, at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center, welcoming hundreds of airport professionals from all over the world to view the latest snow removal equipment and learn pioneering techniques.

Keynote speakers included Buffalo Niagara International Airport Airfield Supervisor Joe Guarino, Buffalo Airport Fire Chief William Major, and Transit Police Aviation Division Captain Louis Loubert who spearheaded lifesaving operations during the historic December blizzard.

The Buffalo Niagara International Airport was also presented with its 8th Balchen/Post Award, given to airport snow-control teams that demonstrate determination and excellence in keeping airport runways open and safe during winter storms. In addition, the NFTA swept the Snow Plow Rodeo. Congratulations to first place winner Chris McBride of the Buffalo Airport, and Brad Follendorf and Tom Locurto from the Niagara Falls Airport.They completed and won against the best in the world. Of course, this past winter, they had way too much practice.
