Nellis AFB is considered the “Home of the Fighter Pilot”, and it is indeed home to the US Air Force Warfare Center, which is the largest advanced air combat training mission in the world. Nellis was first used as the Las Vegas Army Air Field in late 1941 and was used for B-17 gunnery and co-pilot training until it was closed in January 1947. It was reopened in 1949 as the Las Vegas Air Force Base and was renamed in 1950 to honor Lieutenant William Harrell Nellis, a P-47 pilot from southern Nevada who was killed in action on December 27, 1944 over Luxembourg during the Battle of the Bulge. Nellis now covers more than 14,000 acres and employs over 9500 military and civilians to help carry out its mission for advanced combat aviation training.
LiveAirShowTV has covered over 70 air shows, including 20 live broadcasts seen by over four million people on-site, on TV and the Internet.
