Aviation Nation is the one time of the year when Nellis Air Force Base opens its doors and gives the public an experience like no other. From up close and personal experiences with military weapons and vehicles to watching aircraft perform incredible aerial acrobatics in the air, Aviation Nation has something to offer for all ages. This year was especially special as 2016 marks 75 years of operations at Nellis Air Force Base. Beginning in late 1941 as the Las Vegas Army Airfield, Nellis Air Force Base has grown into the home of large exercises such as Red Flag, Green Flag, Joint Forcible Entry Exercise (JFEX), and Advanced Integration (AI). Nellis is also home to the US Air Force Warfare Center (USAFWC) and the US Air Force Weapons School (USAFWS).
