Aviation Nation celebrates 70 years of airpower in Las Vegas and the Air Force’s accomplishments in air, space and cyberspace. Several military air demonstration teams, including the U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron, better known as the Thunderbirds, performed with other military and civilian acts. The two-day event (Nov. 12-13) will depict the history of American aviation and will salute the recent accomplishments of America’s military in operations around the globe through numerous military and civilian ground displays. Over 100 aircraft, covering the earliest days of aviation to some of the nation’s newest military aircraft, are scheduled to be on display. Used a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS USM Lens for entire shoot.
