Updated September 21, 2020 - 12:07 pm

Maj. Trevor Aldridge, a member of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, talks about the precision flying team’s flyover of Allegiant Stadium before the Las Vegas Raiders’ first home game today.

The Thunderbirds, based at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, are scheduled to arrive over the stadium about 5:15 p.m. as the national anthem is played.

Kickoff in the $2 billion stadium will happen shortly after that.

The Raiders play the New Orleans Saints on “Monday Night Football” on ESPN and ABC (KTNV-TV, Channel 13).

With Allegiant Stadium sitting empty during Raiders home games and a limited number of tickets available to UNLV football games, there is another way to get inside the $2 billion facility.
