Reno Air Races

National Air Racing Championships

Each September the National Air Race Championships are held in Reno. This provides one of the best Air Shows in the world combined with what is called the fastest motor sport event in the world. Aircraft routinely round the pylons at speeds approaching 500 MPH with the addition of Jets to the mix speeds now are just short of Mach 1 at hiegts of less than 50 feet at times.

The best way to view these photos is with the PicLens option and full screen.
