Where's the pix? Windy as all get out, only saw the Tbirds fly over once Saturday. Since Dave and Tom are gone, almost not worth going to anymore for the price. Much better when I worked accross the street.

That 175 is so cool. I need to ask Jeffro if I can go up for a ride in it

Well it finally happened, the city of Reno got tired and said this year is the last for the Air Races. Rara is looking for a new venue somewhere else, good luck.

They decided to do an airshow format this fall, beginning of October, I think. Still looking for a place to race at

Which way? Nevada is currently set up with all the laws and related, I was guessing somewhere north of Vegas still avoiding the military training, And we have a massive empty desert just north of reno
