Aviation Nation 2019 Air & Space Expo
November 16 - November 17
Aviation Nation 2019 Air & Space Expo:
Aviation Nation returns to Nellis Air Force Base as we salute our veterans. Aerial performers include the USAF Thunderbirds, C-17 Demo, F-22 Demo, MV 22 and SOCOM Jump team. Displays include T-38, C-17, T-45 Growler, F-15E, Coast Guard.
Aviation Nation, sometimes referred to as America’s Air Show, is the annual award-winning air show of the United States Air Force. The show is hosted at Nellis Air Force Base in November of each year.
Being held at Nellis means that the Thunderbirds usually perform at this air show at their home base as their last show of the year. Since Nellis is the leading Air Force combat training center, the show is able to feature the newest Air Force aircraft like the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lighting II.
The air show is a three-day event and is open to the public for the last two days. Guests who are unable to normally access the base can park at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and ride a free shuttle bus to the base tarmac to view aircraft static displays, tour some aircraft, visit vending booths, and watch aerial demonstrations.
