    With the number of entries, I predict Airbisquit in Silver at least.

    I can't comment on flying too high, cant see 'em way up there, but they should pay a bonus for low flying.

    Over 400... not bad! What's the fastest Miss A has ever run, changes to the course notwithstanding?

    HEY...RARA..you payin' attention...????!!!!


    Really..?? Flying too HIGH..??? Ya; gotta be kidding
    Let's try to remember, this is not necessairly what RARA wants, it's what the NTSB recommend and the FAA wanted. Pilots are not happy being "squeezed" into a smaller space around 8 but that's what they are having to deal with.... There were meetings this AM, reporters not allowed, we may have some changes, let's hope...

    The altitude restriction is based on the "ballistics" if there were an issue at pylon 8. Higher altitudes means parts travel farther. At least, that's their reasoning. Hopefully, they'll work something out.

    Pylon 8! I'm wondering if the altitude squeeze addresses one safety issue and creates a bigger one?
