Curfew at Nellis AFB?

Tue Nov 28, 2017 6:00 pm

I know that Nellis is one of the largest and most important bases in the USAF. Is there a curfew on flight operations at Nellis under normal circumstances? I can only assume that any curfews are automatically lifted by default whenever the famous Red Flag/Green Flag/whatever Flag exercises are hosted by the base. Is that correct?

Thanks in advance for any information.

From their website,

Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., is one of the largest fighter bases in the world. Aircraft from Nellis operate on the Nevada Test and Training Range, which offers more than 15,000 square miles of airspace and 4,700 square miles of restricted land. More than 75 percent of all live munitions used by the Air Force for training are dropped on the Nevada Test and Training Range. Many communities in southern Nevada see and hear Nellis aircraft 24 hours a day, seven days a week. From 100 feet above the ground to twice the speed of sound, Nellis conducts advanced combat training, performs operational test and evaluation, and develops tactics.
