    OK, thanks for clarification. The first link I posted was related to my account...

    The following links should work:

    Video of Voodoo: https://youtu.be/IJU3X1KWLb8
    Video of Argonaut as it comes down into the course and Voodoo: https://youtu.be/0rO0qaC42rk

    Best regards,
    Florian

    So, is Bunny's rudder trim tab missing or just cranked way over? Doesn't see like the rudder is deflected a whole bunch, but I don't see the trim tab...

    It was missing on Sunday in Florian's photo but now has a bare metal one. Stealth tab.

    The trim tab was there but due to the bright background and reflections not visible on my photo.

    Shanty Irish from today noon, unfortunately lots of uprising warm air today which creates blurry effects

    Good on you! Thank you for taking the time to share one moment of the races as they happen... from someone who has, and is one of many, please don't let the desire to capture that single moment of your week at Reno National Championship Air Races and Air Show separate you from the actual experience of RENO.. yes, one word....

    RENO

    Sit back, smell the lead in the fuel being burned, there is no other place like it in the world...

    This has been a good thread. We should add 2017 to title so that down the road it can be searched/found by year.
