    I will be visiting Las Vegas with my 14 year old son March 6-8. And staying fairly close to Nellis AFB. Is there a spot we can view the Nellis airplanes from?
    Thank You

    I have never seen a flyover. Would love to know if you ever flyover Cincinnati, Ohio?

    The video is wonderful~~~

    Are you going to be in South Dakota end of July? I heard it was canceled, but I still see it on the schedule.
    My grandsons are excited to see it. I do hope it is not canceled.

      Unfortunately the show at Ellsworth has been cancelled. It has been very hard to keep up with all of the cancellations, so this schedule is not being updated very frequently. The best place to see an up to date list of shows is on our airshow calendar:

    The revised schedule still shows the Thunderbirds flying on July 22 in Cheyenne Wy. Is there still going to be a air show up there? If so where and at what time and how can I get tickets?

      As of now, Warren AFB is planning to hold a drive-in airshow that day but it is subject to change, obviously. You can find more info on their website

    I thought there was an airshow at Nellis AFB every year. According to the schedule there wasn’t a show even scheduled.

      So far it appears to be largely live streamed events/interviews with some flyovers of communities near the base
