    The show was phenomenal today! So great I’m going again tomorrow! The squadrons sold out of stuff so fast I’m going to have to get there super early tomorrow! Really wanted a Satan’s Angels hat....gone...damnit. But what a show, if you are in Vegas or nearby it’s worth it for the war fighter demo alone. Not too many air shows where you’ll see F15s scramble to intercept aggressor F16s and dogfight followed by A10s doing Csar with f35s as overwatch while pavehawks roll in and long line in troops with a hind swooping in to drop troops as well. With all the Michael bay effects to go with it! It was like a DCS wet dream!

    If anyone is going tomorrow hit me up!

    I attended a few years ago when I was in LV at the time. Best airshow I've seen. I took some pics, but it's not the same... One unique thing about flyby pics at Nellis is the amount of underside lighting from reflected light from the desert sand - many shots look almost fake.

    That’s a great heritage flight right there! The F4s last flight out here was last year unfortunately I wish I could have seen it.

    The F4 was loud and impressive, and it was a bit sad that the narrator said this particular aircraft would probably soon end up being a remotely-powered target drone.
