Sounded like a great day of racing on Saturday. I took the time to listen to the Unlimited Gold Race late in the afternoon. There is a streaming audio of the race via the announcers calling the race. Scott Germain posted some nice shots on his message boards. Really cool to see Race 57 racing from the part into the future! Dago Red won the Gold race for the day. Above are some highlights.

Youngest Reno Air Racer
Over on the web site Airshow Buzz, Steven Hinton Jr. has been posting on the forum a blog of his experience at the Reno Air Races. The posts are a great way to read what it is like flying and crewing at the air races. Years ago at the Texas Air Races I was waiting for some friends at the hotel bar and a little kid walked up to me and smiled. Just a couple seconds later his dad, Steve Hinton came over and grabbed his hand and walked away. Now that young man is racing Mustangs at Reno! Read his latest post here from yesterdays race around the pylons! A few pictures here.

Reno Air Races
The Reno Air Races start today! Follow the news on these web sites in the forums and message boards. Warbird Aeropress, AAFO, and WIX. Qualifying ended yesterday about noon and Rare Bear flew its qualifying lap with just minutes to spare! After being down for about a year Rare Bear's crew got it flying just in time and then it posted a speed of 468 mph! Amazing for a "test flight." Also, check out the picture of the three Tigercat's in attendance! Bet they sounded good flying in! Thanks to Scott Germain of Warbird Aeropress for the pictures above.
