(Nellis, AFB)–  The beauty of a high performance jet on the apron at Nellis Air Force Base.

The Thunderbirds Air Force precision demonstration team is based at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas.

This weekend tens of thousands of people paid a visit to the base. It’s an open house weekend at the base, an event called Aviation Nation.

The visitors got up close to aircraft on the ground and watched a number of flight demonstrations.

This year the Thunderbirds were able to fly for the home crowd, last year they were grounded by sequestration.
