Yes it is. Reno is like Nascar, left turn, left turn, etc.

They have a cool post run CG thing where they show the pilots side by side with themselves or another competitor.

That was all Horsepower right there. No altitude to recover. Pure HP pulled that airplane out of the stall. Pilot is damn lucky!

Red bull air race axed

Safety during the air race and the honouring of contracts by host cities have been among the major issues

This is too bad.

We had the Dead Bull Flutag here last weekend and it drew 90,000 people!

Much safer than the air race I guess...

Perth won't' bid for Red Bull Air Race over costs

http://www.news.com.au/national/pert...-1226534557174


PERTH has dumped the Red Bull Air Race, with the government saying it doesn't represent value for money.
