If you have base access and extra time make a stop out here. Have always been curious about this base and finally made an effort to visit. Takes a little more than 1 hour to get here from Reno. Lots of decommissioned planes on display...More

This was an impromptu drive through that turned into a very interesting side trip. Wish we could have stayed longer, but had to continue on our travel to Fallon.

... as we could not see any public entrance. I was happy with this as it looks as though the base has controlled or liimited access? We could see the outdoor display of fighter jets and get a sense of how large this base is....More

Wife and I use the base all the time for medical and commissary and the Nex store. Also for filling up with gas when needed. All places are very well maintained and operated at a excellent standard. Would recommend!!

It's an NAS located in the high desert of Nevada vs. the beautiful area it left behind in San Diego, CA. Facilities are excellent, access is controlled and cannot say anymore because we'd have to shoot you!

Earlier reviews mentioned how interesting the fighter plane collection was. We drove to the entrance where they took my driver's license and were told there is no museum. After being sure we weren't a threat, we were told to turn around and leave.

The museum of fighter planes is second to none, explanations and descriptions and stats on plaques for you to read. Old ones, new ones, even some of the enemy ones, a very very worthwhile experience for all the family.

I've worked at NAS Fallon since 2007. If you love the sound of freedom then this is a great place to be. Just make sure you know some one and they know you so you can come on and get some cool pictures. If not...More
