I would like to take this opportunity to thank Natalie "Intelgurl" Richardson for a most excellent tour of Nellis AFB.
I went to Las Vegas for the NAB convention last week and was allowed to enter Nellis as a guest of Raytheon Corp. I got to see a Raptor in real life
for the first time which was great although the closest I got was to it was a couple of hundred feet.
I also got to see a whole herd of F-16s (maybe as many as 75-100) including some of the Thunderbirds, a few F-15's, T-38's and A-10's, plus an RAF
Tornado and a Mig which I believe was a Mig-29.
I also saw some UCAV's like the Globe Hawk and the Preditor and also bunches of helicopters.
All in all it was a real treat for me and my wife in spite of the sunburn and I thank Natalie who was very friendly and professional, and also the
Above Top Secret web site without which I would never have been able to meet the right people so I could see the base.
