Nellis Air Force Base – A Hive of Activity


Nellis Air Force Base, just north of Las Vegas is one of the biggest and noisiest bases in the United States Air Force. Alan Kenny was there to photograph the busy base in action.

There is an almost constant buzz and hum at Nellis Air Force Base. It is home to some of the deadliest fighter jets in the world and boasts aircraft like the F-15C & F-15E, F-22A, F-16C, A-10 and F-35 in its inventory. Red and Green Flags are held at the base a few times a year and the base is very busy when the exercises are on.
