American Airmen: Breaking Barriers since 1947

Come to Nellis Air Force Base Nov. 11 & 12 to celebrate the U.S. Air Force’s 70th Birthday at Aviation Nation 2017 Air & Space Expo.


This FREE event is open to the public.


American Airmen have been breaking barriers for 70 years in air, space and cyberspace, resulting in global vigilance, reach and power. They’ve shown tenacity in Korea’s MiG Alley, endurance in Vietnam’s Rolling Thunder campaign, decisiveness over the skies of Baghdad during Desert Storm, and resilience in Iraq and Afghanistan. Airmen are now fully engaged as part of America's joint force in every region of the world and every mission area across the full spectrum of military operations. Airmen span the globe and airpower has become the “oxygen the joint team breathes.”

Buses from Las Vegas Motor Speedway to the event entrance on base start running at 9 a.m.

Opening Ceremony begins at 10 a.m.

Buses stop taking guests to the event at 1 p.m.

Event gates close at 5 p.m.
