Shooting at Reno is easy. I just follow Tim around, and when he raises his camera ...





What an amazing week at Stead.

^^^^ That Temco never looked so good as it does in your photograph - terrific image Jay. Looking forward to some cool mornings at P08 this fall

I'd like to offer a big Thank You to all who so generously share their work here. Also special thanks to Tim for our annual helping of Reno eye candy.

Oh, nearly forgot also thanks to the Arizona chapter the shipment of jelloair arrived safely and is being put to good use ..

@Tim - as an unabashed 'Rare Bear' fan, I really like this image. You've captured the sensation of that humongous prop in spades. The ghosting effect of the long exposure just adds to the magical feel

Holy cow Matt! I don't care how many megapixels that image is, everyone of them is a beautiful pixel.



Jim,

Thanks so much. It felt good to know when I clicked the shutter it would be a keeper. That does not happen often for me, I seem to have to dig a little to get silk from the sow

Really nice Tim, looks like Nelson in the driver seat...


I think it was John Penney. John did most of the flight testing during the week.



Roger that...

Clay Lacy's 1970 winner was in Reno this week. The plane has not flown for probably 15yrs. It is a real time capsule wearing it's original paint.




Another really nice one, do you know who had the honors of flying it over from KVNY?


Not sure, it was not Clay though.



Thank you...

I walked around several days looking from Strega and never saw her, only Tiger in his chair...

Righto, just to prove I was actually in Reno and wasn't lyin', here are some actual pictures!

Now, don't be expecting any beautiful dawn shots, or any zoomy pylon shots either. I went with my husband on holiday and didn't think a media pass would be fair on him, if I abandoned him to a pylon for half the day. However, we spent a lot of time with a bunch of Sport Air Racing League guys who were there :-)

A few more. I'm expecting a visitor in a few hours so might be erratic after that.

(Anyone going to the Le Mans series racing at COTA this weekend?)

Here's the other SARL planes that were there. They each had a few other SARL folks as crew; there were probably twenty SARL guys and gals around the Sport Class pits.

Here's a few from Saturday - Hoot Gibson flying 232 September Fury low and tight on Pylon 2, then a few laps later his engine detonates/backfires and blows up the intake trunk near the home pylon. Hoot performs a perfect emergency landing on 14.
