Military Aircraft Around Las Vegas, Aircraft Around Las Vegas
 

Out and about in the desert and mountains around Las Vegas, military aircraft will fly over your head and intrude upon your solitude. However, learning to identify aircraft in flight adds an odd twist to enjoying the outdoors while hiking and birding around Las Vegas -- how many species and varieties can you identify?

According to the US Air Force, the B-1 is the backbone of the American long-range heavy bomber force and can "rapidly deliver massive quantities of precision and non-precision weapons against any adversary, anywhere in the world, at any time." B-1Bs carry the largest weapons payload of any U.S. aircraft.
