Southern Nevada residents may notice increased noise from military aircraft as the Air Force hosts Aviation Nation 2022 from November 4 – 6. 

Known as the “Home of the Fighter Pilot,” Nellis Air Force Base will host its first air show in three years. Aviation Nation 2022 is a capstone event culminating the celebration of the Air Force’s 75th anniversary. For 75 years, American Airmen have excelled as they executed the Air Force’s mission to fly, fight, and win — delivering airpower anytime, anywhere in defense of our nation.  

Aviation Nation 2022 will include several aerial performances, static displays, and exhibits featuring the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, Aftershock Jet Fire Truck, Air Combat Command’s F-35 Lightning II Demonstration Team and many others. More than 100,000 spectators are expected to attend.
