Reno Air Races: More photos/info

September 22, 2007 at 2:30 pm Leave a comment

I had a pretty busy week.  Obviously, that limited my reading, browsing, posting time.  There are plenty of threads with photos, updates and stories on AAFO.

The link blog was updated also.  Some of the posts were very well written. 

Victor Archer has posted his tribute to Gary Hubler.  Classy.  Victor’s work is always classy.

Wow!  Bob Button announced (video, post race interview) on The Voodoo website that he will not pilot Voodoo next year.  Improvements on the plane are moving forward. [via]

It was very cool to see John Penney post his personal account of landing Rare Bear after the Unlimited Gold Sunday.  I’ve said before, these guys make emergency landings look easy.  John explains it was team effort in the post.

Ahh, Miss America.  A favorite from my childhood days in Lemmon Valley!

Elmer Ward, highly regarded amonst the AAFOers, past away 9-20-07.  Sad news.  Blue skies Elmer!  (Here’s another post.)

"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:
