Sneak peek of Aviation Nation: Katie takes a ride in a jet

LAS VEGAS - Aviation Nation is back at Nellis Air Force Base, and it came back around just in time for the Veterans Day weekend.

The show, which is free to the public, starts Saturday and runs through Sunday.  Aviation Nation is the largest free event in the state of Nevada.

The show usually has attendees made up of veterans, active military personnel, non-military personnel, and kids.  The airshow features up-front static displays and their wildly popular aerial demonstrations.

The capstone of each day of air show features the highly-technical, aerial maneuvers of the Air Force's "Ambassadors in Blue," better known as the Thunderbirds.

8 News NOW Reporter Katie Boer met the pilots and got a pretty cool preview ahead of the big show.
