Bill "Rhino" Rheinschild's highly modified North American P-51D Mustang racer, "Risky Business," seen here for it's last year of racing. An interesting occurance yesterday...for the second time, an Unlimited racer has clipped the tailfeathers on another racer...this time, Risky munching Furias(ly). Both aircraft were coming down the chute when the mishap occurred. Both aircraft raced and landed without further trouble.

And Bill said that he had had enough of Sea Furies!:p :
