CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WKBW) Even those without tickets to see President Obama speak at the University of Buffalo's Alumni Arena were excited to be part of the Presidential visit.

Crowds of people lined Cayuga Road in Cheektowaga to watch Air Force One land at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.

Cheers erupted as the President exited the airport grounds onboard his bus that was escorted by a large number of police and Secret Service agents.

Many people said they could see the President waving to them through the front windows of the bus.
