Utica, NY (WIBX) - One lawmaker is hoping to bring back a Boilermaker tradition.

Senator Charles Schumer is urging the Air Force to approve an F-16 flyover at the Boilermaker post race party.

Schumer says if the Air Force incorporates the flyover into mandated training, it will add no additional cost to taxpayers.

He says there are four nearby bases with F-16's that could be used for the flyover.

Boilermaker officials have already received clearance from the FAA.

The F-16 flyovers at the race ended in 2009
