MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa, Fla -- Western New York Tim Horton’s owner Robert Burns (on left) and his son Jared Burns inspect the cockpit of an Air Force KC-135. The two employers along with more than 35 other local employers had the opportunity to tour the KC-135 on a recent ESGR funded trip to the 927th Air Refueling Wing at MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa, Fla. as part of a combined New York Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve Bosslift for the Employer Suppport of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) program by the 107th Airlift Wing and the 914th Airlift Wing at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Base.
On March 25 more than 35 Niagara and Erie county bosses boarded one of Team Niagara's C-130 bound for MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa, Fla. The trip was designed to educate the employers the vital role that Guardsmen and Reservists play in today's military. Team Niagara consists of the New York Air National Guard's 107th Airlift Wing and the Air Force Reserve's 914th Airlift Wing. As a result of the Base Realignment and Closure Committee the two collocated wings are now associated, working together flying and maintaining the same air frames.
