Rolling on the two main gears a Hawker Sea Fury Race Number 114 racers passes though one of the taxi intersections. During race week Stead airfield activity soars with formation takeoffs, parachutists and fast launch intervals for both the racers and the fans.
An engine run-up on "Risky Business" reverberates on the ramp during a routine engine check. Crews put in long hours during race week keeping their aircraft at their peak performance capability for all four days of actual racing.
Another image of the Risky Business Engine Run-up. This time I changed the shutter speed to 250th of a second to stop the props a bit more than the image shown above. You need to know the PRM of an engine in order to effectively freeze or blur the props on aircraft as desired.
