    Default Race 33 Qualification and Emergency Landing Video

    Hey Guys,

    Here is the video from Monday's qualifying run and emergency landing in #Race33.



    It was a long hard push to get the airplane to Reno and this was an unfortunate end to the racing season. We have started the process of investigating what happened to cause the failure, but more importantly we have started the process of preparing the airplane for a triumphant return next year.

    Thanks for all the support.

    Elliot,

    Very intense sequence of events there young man.

    Nerves of steel required to handle a mayday and successful landing like that.

    Thank you for sharing that video.

    Thanks for posting this, Elliot. The in cockpit view is a lot scarier than it looks from the ground, and it gives us fans a real sense of what a pilot is dealing with when things go really sour.

    I was really impressed with how quickly the fire response was there.

    You were flying a really beautiful line around the course. I was really looking forward to you running this year in a seriously competitive airplane -- it was gonna be fun to watch. Now the wait for next year...

    Nice landing! We're all bummed you're out for the year but I'm sure excited to see you're already making plans for next year.
    You'll get your chance, smart guy!

    Those guys are on it! I'm always impressed how they are on the scene before the actual scene is in its final location.

    Elliot,

    Do you have checklist for mayday processes/steps you reference?

    Great video! Thanks for posting! I'm looking forward to following your progress in the "off" season, and seeing you charge hard next year! I'm glad you're safe!

    Great response from the emergency crews! Eddie Andrini (sp) could have used them!

    Full throttle till you see God, then turn left!

    I was really sorry to hear about your year being done, but glad you made it down safely. This is one of the best mayday videos I have seen (I am sure that is not the compliment you were hoping for this year!) thanks to the subtitles. Admittedly I am never sure of what all the cockpit sequences are. That was informative.

    Had to laugh at "Is that just a garden hose"?
    And paraphrased...
    E: "Is that just water"
    FF: "No it has some retardant..."
    E: "Then stop..."

    Sorry you are out for 2016. Will be pulling for you guys again in 2017.
    ~Jim
