Nellis Air Force Base cancels Aviation Nation

CREATED Mar. 26, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Nellis Air Force Base has announced the cancellation of Aviation Nation 2013.

The popular community event was scheduled for November 9-10 of this year.

The announcement was made Tuesday by 99th Air Base Wing Commander Col. Barry Cornish.

Col. Cornish cited the impact of the Budget Control Act and associated sequestration.

"The U.S. Air Force has prioritized combat readiness over other activities and air shows have been canceled as a result," said Col. Cornish in a release.

Officials at Nellis said they hope to resume Aviation Nation in the future.
