"Remembering Friends"

No one in air-racing has ever loved a "go-fast" airplane more than Rick Brickert. Having flown some of the fastest like Dago Red, Dreadnought and then the Pond Racer, Rick packed a lot of excitement into his race career. In 1991, he did double duty flying the T-33 Red Knight as the unlimited class pace plane and debuting the Pond Racer. Tragically, the Pond Racer and Rick were lost in qualifying at Reno in 1993.

The photo of the Pond Racer was taken in 1991 and was featured on the cover of World Airshow News one week before Rick's loss in 1993, photo of Rick on Dago's wing was shot in 1985.
