JAW DROPPING VIDEO FEATURES USAF AIRCRAFT AT WORK AT NEVADA TEST AND TRAINING RANGE

The Nevada Test and Training Range is the largest contiguous air and ground space available for peacetime military operations in the free world

The following video shows U.S. Air Force (USAF) Weapons School squadrons performing composite mission application and combat search and rescue (CSAR) missions at the Texas Lake dry lakebed on the Nevada Test and Training Range at Nellis Air Force Base (AFB).

Aircraft include C-17s from the 57th Weapons Squadron, A-10s from the 66th Weapons Squadron, a HC-130J from the 34th Weapons Squadron, and HH-60Gs from the 66th Rescue Squadron.

The Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR), formerly the 98th Range Wing, gives the warfighter the chance to train in a flexible, realistic and multidimensional battle-space to conduct testing tactics development, and advanced training in support of U.S. national interests. Moreover the NTTR also provides instrumentation and target maintenance support for Green Flag-West at the National Training Center and Leach Lake Tactics Range (LLTR).

Currently the NTTR is the largest contiguous air and ground space available for peacetime military operations in the free world. The range occupies 2.9 million acres of land, 5,000 square miles of airspace which is restricted from civilian air traffic over-flight and another 7,000 square miles of Military Operating Area, or MOA, which is shared with civilian aircraft.

The 12,000-square-nautical mile range provides a realistic arena for operational testing and training aircrews to improve combat readiness. A wide variety of live munitions can be employed on targets on the range.
