Nellis Air Force Base has announced that there will not be an open house and air show in 2018.

NAFB says that it has been a busy year for Nellis and Creech Air Force Base.

The open house and air show are usually held every other year and the 2017 show was held during an off year to celebrate the Air Force's 70th birthday. More than 160,000 people attended this year's event.

The 2019 Air and Space Expo is also being moved to the weekend after Veterans Day to avoid conflicts with the holiday.
