This year, Aviation Nation 2012 will again highlight the ‘Thunderbirds’ during the installation’s two-day event, Nov. 10 – 11, 2012.

Gates open at 9 a.m., and general admission and public parking at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway is free, where free round-trip shuttle bus transportation to and from Nellis AFB will also be available. A handicapped parking area will be designated at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and handicapped-accessible shuttle buses will be provided.

Due to security reasons, the recommended access route to the show for the general public is the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The general public must process through security lines and ride buses from the speedway to Nellis AFB. However, people using public transportation to get to the event can take a shuttle bus from the base’s front gate to the Thunderbird’s entry control point. This shuttle will be running back and forth to the front gate throughout the day. People riding this shuttle will process through security at the main gate.

The following is a list of banned items that will be confiscated or cause attendees to be turned away at the gate if brought to Aviation Nation:

• Coolers, grills, glasses containers, and large lawn chairs.

• Weapons, illegal drugs, fireworks, scanners, laser pointers, fixed blade knives and folding knives longer than 3 inches.

• Pets, except for service animals.

• Excessively large storage items and bags. The only exceptions are diaper bags, small purses and small camera bags.

• Bicycles, scooters, skateboards and rollerblades/skates
