The Thunderbirds, the U.S. Air Force’s aerial demonstration squadron, are expected to do a flyover of the Las Vegas Valley, May 9, 2022. A press release from the Thunderbirds said they will be returning to Nellis Air Force Base on May 9 after a 12-day deployment with performances at two cities. When the Thunderbirds get home, they are expected to perform a formation flyover over Las Vegas that can be seen at approximately 12:30 p.m. “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.” Be sure and check back for any updates regarding arrival time. They will also be posted on the Thunderbirds Twitter account.
