Nellis - Aviation Nation 2012 - Nov 10th & 11th

Post by Oldtower »

Well, i have heard a couple of things - some of the aircraft from Exercise Green Flag will stay over for the show, and a rumoured appearance by an F35. We will see!

Pretty sure the Heritage flight (incl the F4 Phantom), the based units Flyby (A10 / F15 / F16), & possible Attack sequence ala 2012 (F15s / F16s etc) are on the cards as are The Thunderbirds...

This is the show that will end my 2012 airshow season. I'm counting down the days. The long range weather looks perfect. My only complaint. Where is the F-4? Nellis just isn't Nellis without a nice smokin phantom.

Here is a photo of the QF-4 from last year's Aviation Nation

You would have loved the Legacy of Liberty show at Moody AFB a week ago. They had 2 QF-4 Phantoms fly up from Tyndall AFB for the show.

Yeap... I have seen the same shots of the phantom. I got the same ones from last years Aviation Nation. Excellent shot of the 2 phantoms though. As I type this. I'm sitting here at Bellingham airport waiting for the 10AM flight to Vegas.. Wahoo! Bring on the weekend.
