(Nellis Air Force Base, NV)  —  The Thunderbirds will be flying high once again.

Nellis Air Force Base officials say temporary funding is in place for the demonstration squadron to resume training flights.

In April, budget cuts forced by the sequestration grounded the Thunderbirds and forced scheduled shows to be canceled.

Las Vegas Valley residents will see the team in the air later this week.
