A press release from the Thunderbirds said they will be returning to Nellis Air Force Base after a 12-day deployment with performances in two cities.

“Las Vegas is our home,” said Lt. Col. Justin Elliott, Thunderbirds commander. “This team spends a lot of time deployed around the country, so this is just one small way for us to thank the Las Vegas community, our host, for their unyielding support of the Thunderbirds and the United States Air Force.”

Updates on the Las Vegas arrival time will be posted on the Thunderbirds Twitter account, @AFThunderbirds.
