More Than 200,000 Show Up For Aviation Nation Near Las Vegas

More than 200,000 people were expected to show at the Aviation Nation air show at Nellis Air Force base over the weekend.

About 140,000 people showed up Saturday to watch pilots like the Thunderbirds execute maneuvers in the sky.

Major Veronica Kemeny says just as many were expected for the
final day of the show Sunday.

The show marks the final season of Major Nicole Malachowski, who is the first female to join the Thunderbirds two years ago.

There were so many people on hand that an estimated 10,000 lined
up to eat free samples of Spam.
