** Opening ceremonies Championship Sunday, final gold races for
2009 **Unbelievable weather 85'f and light winds, never seen a more perfect
Reno 2009 was a huge success with no
accidents. We experienced some of the best weather we've seen for
the races. Lot's of sun, 80' & 90' days with light winds, just beautiful. Danny
Davidson road his Harley down from Oregon and joined Diana & I for the
weekend. Saw many other friends from Alaska who also made the pilgrimage
south. Reno being the only air race in the world has grown. With a new class
Supper Sport (Experimental kit aircraft turbo charged and running over
400mph). Reno has also added an additional day with qualifying starting on Wednesday.
Five days of non stop action as always. The Blue Angels, Alaska, and Nevada
National Guard plus many aerobatic and aircraft performances filled the
time between qualifying and elimination heat races which lead up to the final
Silver and Gold races on Sunday.
We were there to see and experience it all. Enjoy the photo gallery.
