Thunderbirds fly over Las Vegas Valley — PHOTOS

Updated May 10, 2022 - 12:40 pm

The Thunderbirds, the U.S. Air Force’s aerial demonstration squadron, did a flyover of the Las Vegas Valley today.

The team flew northbound over Interstate 15 around 1 p.m.

A press release from the Thunderbirds said they were returning to Nellis Air Force Base after a 12-day deployment with performances in two cities.

“Las Vegas is our home,” said Lt. Col. Justin Elliott, Thunderbirds commander. “This team spends a lot of time deployed around the country, so this is just one small way for us to thank the Las Vegas community, our host, for their unyielding support of the Thunderbirds and the United States Air Force.”
