Aviation Nation at Nellis Air Force Base opens to the public Saturday and runs through the weekend out at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

It’s a great chance to see some of our country’s best pilots in action.

Nearly 132,000 people are expected to attend the eighth annual air show. There will be more than 100 aircraft on display as well as the unmanned aircraft The Predator.

You’ll also get to see the famous Thunderbirds perform.

"We’ve gone all over the United States and we've gone to five different countries in the Far East,” explains Thunderbirds Captain Jason McCree.

Aviation Nation is fun for the whole family. In fact, it’s the largest public event in the state.

Admission to the show and parking are both free; if you drive you have to park and ride at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
