Just stopped by Nellis and took a picture of the Thunderbird's nest while I was there.

Oh, ditto. :(

EDIT: Unsurprisingly, they make air to air refuelling look like piece of cake:

Stuart: I hope they get flying again before the Aviation Nation air show this Fall.

Unlikely.
I posted a full list of all affected US Squadrons here:-

The List is huge and also affects Raptor and B2 squadrons. Quite shocking.

The big issue as I see it is not that units will have to stand down, though that still hurts, but that there probably will be less flying hours for the remaining units and a risk that there will be fewer exercises. Proficiency is perishable, and I really hope it will not show in the accident statistics in a few years. :(
