New Air Racing team

June 27, 2006 at 3:30 pm Leave a comment

I set up a RSS feed for Air Racing related articles and this came in today.  There is a new unlimited team that will be flying at Reno this year, Team Steadfast.  Best of luck to them.  They will be flying a Yak. 

 For those not familiar with the air races in Reno, Stead AFB (now Reno-Stead airport) is where they hold the races.  It’s an old AFB 8-10 miles north of downtown.  I used to live in Lemmon Valley, the exit just before Stead, and my aunt lived in one of the old AFB houses.  The T-6s and Unlimited class would fly over my house heading into the first pylon to start the races.  That’s when I caught air race fever!  There is nothing like the rumble of those planes coming in to race!  Related:  here’s the Wikipedia entry on Air Racing.

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
