Reno Air Races

The first day of the Reno air races has shown that the world does not yet belong completely to the composite aircraft. In the Sport Class a Swearingen SX 300 won with a speed of close to 300 mph against a field which included Lancairs and Glasairs. Of course the contest was a closed course race where pilot skill is a feature.

The event is well attended. During the show Epic landed 3 of its variants - the propjet and the two pure jets. The VLJ's are here!

Tomorrow the Unlimited class aircraft will race - the most popular aircraft.
