Reno Air Races – Tuesday

What a thrill to be able to check off one more item on my bucket list: the Reno Air Races! I’ve never been, but certainly wanted to. So when I applied for, and was awarded, media credentials for the event, I was elated! And here I am.

I arrived at Reno on Tuesday afternoon and headed up to the Reno/Stead Airport (RTS) to get checked in and receive my marching orders. After hitting the Media Check-in Center, I hung out with Abe Gaskins for a few minutes before making my way out to the media stand by the runway. It was fairly late in the day but I did manage a few photos before the end of practice.

Race 3 (N63SF) is a Hawker Sea Fury TMK20 flown by Dennis Sanders
