A major expansion at Buffalo-Niagara required an extension of new jet blast deflector that matched the profile of an existing BDI deflector supplied many years earlier. The 14-foot (4.2-meter) tall, curved jet blast deflector protects a public roadway from jet blast produced by taxiing aircraft. This structure is rated for an industry standard jet blast velocity of 140 mph (225 km/hr).
