Nellis AFB Airshow 2017

Nellis, an integral part of the United States Air Force’s Air Combat Command, is known as the “Home of the Fighter Pilot.” It is the pinnacle of advanced air combat aviation training. The base’s all-encompassing mission is accomplished through an array of aircraft: A-10; F-15C; F-15E; F-22A; F-16; RQ-1A and MQ-1 Predator remotely piloted aircraft; and HH-60G helicopters. Nellis’ work force of approximately 12,000 military and civilian people makes it one of the largest single employers in southern Nevada.

The base is located approximately eight miles northeast of downtown Las Vegas and covers more than 14,000 acres, while the total land area occupied by Nellis and the restricted Nevada Test and Training Range is more than 4,800 square miles. An additional 10,000 square miles of airspace north and east of the restricted range are also available for military flight operations.

 

The Nellis Air Force Base Aviation 2017 Air and Space Expo kicked off Veterans Day over clear Las Vegas skies.  The expo showcased numerous acts from past and present and provided the Southern Nevada community an opportunity to interact with Airmen over the weekend.  This year’s event celebrates the U.S. Air Force’s 70th birthday with the theme of Breaking Barriers through Airmen's innovation, training and a proud Air Force heritage since 1947.  The Air and Space Expo is expected to attract a crowd of more than 200,000 aircraft enthusiasts over the two-day event.  The many aerial acts and static aircraft and ground displayed during the air and space expo are snapshots of the Air Force’s 70 years of aviation history. This event marks the end of the U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron Thunderbirds 2017 air show season.

It takes a team to bring an idea to reality. A team that has creativity and a desire to show their love of our city, Las Vegas. 

After putting in the hours and taking an idea from the drawing board to the airplane, the Airmen and members of Nellis Air Force Base present their tribute to the city and members of Las Vegas. 

Nellis is Vegas Strong.
