Can I see the Thunderbirds at Nellis AFB in the month of February 2023?
I served at Nellis AFB from February 1970 to September 1970. SSGT. Aircraft refueling.
Would like to tour the base again.
The Thunderbirds will be practicing at that time, but probably not at Nellis. You would have to contact the team or base PAO to see about getting in.
I love this airshows I will love to see it I know y’all been practices for along time so I hope y’all do well for this year I can’t wait to see it…….
Will the airshow at Keesler be on base or over the Bay?
It sounds like it will be a mixture of both. The best place for specific show info is in our forums: https://www.airshowstuff.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4304
Will there be an air show this year at MacDill AFB in Tampa, Florida? I have several students that are interested in aviation and others that have never been in an airplane, and I would like them to be exposed to this.
No show at MacDill this year but there are many shows in Florida that might be within range, check our 2023 calendar for a full list: https://airshowstuff.com/v4/airshow-calendar/2023-airshow-aviation-event-calendar/
I grew up seeing the Thunderbirds fly because my dad was in the Air Force for 30 years! The problem is that I’m an adult and my dad has long since passed. I really would love to see you guys and live in South Carolina. I know you’ve been here in the last couple of years but I didn’t find out until afterwards. Could you tell me if you will be coming back this way in 2023? Thank you all for your service!
