F-16's from the Flight Line @ KLSV

Hey all,

Me and @Alec had a special opportunity to celebrate the Civil Air Patrol Nevada Wing’s 80th anniversary on the Nellis AFB Flight Line. Lots of jets around but we had to follow some guidelines and only photograph the aligned aircraft. Enjoy!


A fine looking F-16C in a paint scheme nicknamed “The Ghost.” 👻


One of CAP’s Cessna 182T’s. I believe Alec has flown in this one! 🛩️


The GA8 Airvan that I’ve now had 2 rides in. ✈️


The star of the show, and my favorite looking F-16C, the legendary Wraith! 🖤❤️


Replaced tail part removed some of the W and A. Hopefully they get that repainted soon! 🎨


The name of the pilot who maneuvers this beauty. 🧑‍✈️


Little bonus shot if you don’t like military, too bad I barely missed a Swiss 77W depart LAS after diverting from LAX. 🦢


Forgot to mention, Happy 80th birthday to the best CAP Wing in the states! 🎂
