The L39 "Albatross" jet class will be racing for the first time this year. These two seat trainers will be flying the same course that the unlimited use.
"Critical Mass" makes a show pass along the flight line upon arrival Saturday. This modified Bearcat is always a crowd pleaser and is very competitive with Tom Dwell at the controls.
The nose art on Critcal Mass has him pushing the prop allowing the aircraft to fly a little faster.
An AT-6 class racer taxis into the pit area after arrival. The workhorse World War Two trainer is likely the loudest aircraft on the course.
The P-51 "Merlin's Magic" makes an arrival pass above the runway at Reno. Arriving aircraft are usually allowed a pass just like you see in the movies, traffic pattern and operational considerations permitting.
