WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- More than 80 air power leaders from
around the world will meet in Las Vegas April 23-24 as part of the
50th anniversary celebration of our nation's Air Force.  This Global
Air Chiefs Conference is to further cooperation and support among
world air power leaders in the spirit of Global Engagement.  Global
Engagement is the new vision for the Air Force of the 21st century.

The gathering of air chiefs represents the largest single meeting of
air and space leaders in history.  Culminating the meeting will be a
two-day Golden Air Tattoo international air show at Nellis Air
Force Base, Nev., April 25-26.

The air show, which is open to the public, is scheduled to feature
four foreign demonstration teams.  There will be static displays and
flyovers depicting examples of every aircraft in the Air Force
inventory, as well as many vintage aircraft.  The Air Force
Thunderbirds aerial demonstration squadron will perform on both
days.

Additionally, the Air Force Association is sponsoring an
International Air Power Symposium and Exposition at the Las
Vegas Convention Center during that week.

These events are part of worldwide recognition of the "Golden
Legacy and Boundless Future" of the U. S. Air Force as it
celebrates 50 years of service to the nation as an independent
branch of the military.  The Air Force was established Sept. 18,
1947, by President Harry S. Truman with the signing of the
National Security Act.
