Photos of the arrival of the static display A-10A Thunderbolt II on Friday August 31, 2012. The lack of an A-10 demo during the show was a huge let down. Hopefully next year the demo will return. Enjoy!      

The following videos were filmed on Friday, November 11, 2011 during practice for the 2011 Aviation Nation Air Show at Nellis Air Force Base, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The spotting location is at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, on the race track side of Las Vegas Blvd. Subscribe to my YouTube channel for updates on the newest videos !

Wednesday November 17th was the date for this year’s MAFEX exercise. Unfortunately is was a night exercise. Not too good for regular cameras! So instead of driving Rachel for MAFEX, spent a few hours at Nellis watching the normal flight ops. It turned out to be a very active period. Here’s the first of a few posts from the day.   Enjoy !    

This year’s practice day for the 2011 Aviation Nation Air Show at Nellis Air Force Base came with horrible weather conditions for photos. Most of the day was gray and gloomy with a solid cloud deck, a high deck, but solid. Towards the end some blue skies peaked through, but hardly enough to make the photogs happy. Enjoy !
