Finished off a fantastic two weeks in the SW US with 4 days at Nellis. I was totally blown away. Every afternoon you get a spectacle that is better than any air display I have ever attended. Some pictures below and many more at this link https://photos.app.goo.gl/oIJglSMM8Gk7soMl2

Great set.

Some interesting shots there...

1. You bagged the first WA marked bird in Have Glass.
2. You bagged the special scheme RAAF Growler
3. The USN Growler is packing the new Aim-120D

Thanks . I had to look it up but my education continues I now know what Have Glass is. Seems like US schemes are going to be a bit samey for a few years.

I don't think there is much flying at weekends. In the week that we were there, there was no Red Flag flying on the Friday either although I assume that there was normal base flying.

I wouldn't think so unless you are happy with distant views of a couple of hundred aircraft on the ramps

Good set. The mountains make a great backdrop for the landing shots.
