Editor's Note (taken from Globalsecurity.org):
Nellis Air Force Base -- "Home of the Fighter Pilot" -- is a member of the United States Air Force's Air Combat Command. It is home to the largest and most demanding advanced air combat training in the world. Nellis provides training for composite strike forces which include every type of aircraft in the US Air Force inventory. Training is also conducted in conjunction with air and ground units of the Army, Navy and Marine Corps as well as air forces from allied nations.
Nellis Air Force Base grew from a rural, war-time base to the biggest, busiest, and best base in the United States Air Force. Its roots lay in a time of approaching conflagration, in which the United States prepared its defenses against world-wide aggressors. It continues to train air combat warriors to fly, fight, and win in the national interest.
Nellis Air Force Base is located 8 miles northeast of Las Vegas, at the northeast corner of the Las Vegas Valley in the southeastern corner of Nevada. The base is located adjacent to the cities of Las Vegas and North Las Vegas in Clark County. The unincorporated town of Sunrise Manor and uninhabited areas of Clark County encompass the majority of the base. The main base covers approximately 11,300 acres, 7,000 acres (62 percent) of which are undeveloped; the remaining area is either paved or contains structures.
