Air Racing: 9/26/06

There is a lot of good stuff still trickling in.

There are some fantastic pictures in this post from the Reno Air Races. 

If you haven’t checked out Victor Archer’s air racing galleries yet, you need to.  He has some of the best stuff from the air races.  He also has T-shirts printed for sale here (if there any left – I need to get my order in too!)  Speaking of great shots, you have to see this one where he caught Rare Bear flying “over the moon.”

Here is a post (post #29) that explains why Reno is addicting and why the Red Bull races in Europe don’t quite suffice.  In their defense (a later post makes this point too), the Red Bull folks do market their races well.  It would be cool to see Reno do better in that respect.  Getting a big-time sponsor would be huge!  Any takers?

More pictures:  some pictures from the fence line at Reno, (Nice shots!)  Spirit of Texas flying low, and finally, a REAL CLASSIC airplane (winner of the Rolls Royce Heritage Trophy at Reno.

"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:
