Training Jets Over LAS Today

Mon Sep 29, 2008 4:49 am

At approximately 1230 locat time today, a group of about 10 training jets flew over a residential area of Las Vegas. They did not appear to be landing at LAS, but may have been going to Nellis. Against the overcast sky, it wa hard to tell what these were, but they may have been the Canadian Snowbirds acrobatic team. Did anyone else see them today?

Very well could have been the Snowbirds, your right. They just performed in Chico and next is Douglas, Arizona and El Paso. Nellis would be a very likely fuel stop. I look forward to seeing them with the Blue's at Fleet Week Oct 11-12.
