Andy, i went to Nellis Airshow 2009 - 2012, the last one being in middle of Green Flag also, so hence the B-1B in the flying as pre show there were 6 B1-Bs on the ramp on the far side, but come show weekend one was static, two on the flying side. The A10s / F15s /F16s / HH60s will be i expect the demo involving a tactical scenario with lots of flares from the fighters possible and of course the F15s/ F16s / HH60s are drawn from the based units there :) Apart from a few items, its more or less what flew in 2012, but all the same is good!

Yeap I remember the 2012 show... Saturday was a little cool... but on both days the B-1B did an awesome banana topside pass along the axis of the show line.

Even if all we get is a couple passes of the B-1B again. I'll be a very happy person! :yahoo:

After missing the F-35 at RIAT/F'borough the summer I was concerned that the event schedule on the Nellis Facebook page had a couple of glaring omissions.

Nellis addressed this with a FB comment though:

"F4 will be on display and participating in the Korean re-enactment.

F-35 will be on display and is scheduled for a special appearance.

B-1s are scheduled to make a special appearance, as well.

You won't be disappointed!"

there is a 6th b1 in the static park. 3 at the north end, 2 next to the ç17 which departed late afternoon. (Apparently).

The QF-4 x 2 arrived 0830 this morning

F22 did a great display

4th 41sqn typhoon was initially being prepped to depart but then had covers put back on. Maybe went tech.
