    Default 2017 Reno Air Races early week reports: Whats on the Ramp?

    Throw what you know!!! Here's what I know...

    Unlimited's:
    -TFLM Fleet "Little Horse", "Whistling Death", "Normandy Spit", and their B-25.
    I think Bernie is bringing the Warhawk and the Avenger should arrive soon too.
    -Sawbones coming in by the end of the day...?

    T-6:
    -On the ramp is Gunslinger, Miss TNT, Midnight Miss III, & an unnamed bird.
    -Race 7 Miss Kitty and Race 9 Gotcha are en route

    Jet:
    -Not entirely sure, I know Race 61 lives there and I know Vicky in Darkstar II is en route if not there already...
    -Race 8 and 10 are on their way, most likely by the end of the day

    Sport:
    -All 3 Thunder Mustangs are on site obviously
    -One Moment should be en route
    -A couple of RV's and Glasair's en route or already there...

    Sawbones made it

    Full Noise stopped at Mather on the way to Stead earlier and should be safe on the ramp

    Full Noise looks to have made it sometime this morning, didn't sound like an easy trip.

    Full Noise has made it onto the ramp, I bet it was a fun trip from Chino, especially for a kiwi flying in the USA, pilots might deal with 2 or 3 controllers the whole length of NZ... and lots of uncontrolled airspace.. but great to see it on the ground. the dream is alive baby!
