LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Thunderbirds plan to do a flyover of Las Vegas when they return to their home at Nellis Air Force Base today.
The USAF squadron has been on a 12-day deployment at two separate who sites.
“Las Vegas is our home,” said Lt. Col. Justin Elliott, Thunderbird 1, commander/leader. “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.”
The flyover is expected to happen around 12:30 p.m.
