    Default PRS Happenings

    Thought I would start a new thread for PRS arrivals... Flightaware has Diamondback listed to arrive tomorrow. Mark's website has the Alpha Jet listed to attend for jet class training so Dback coming is news to me... Did Diamondback go last year..?

    Does anybody have any knowledge who might be coming to PRS? Any Unlimiteds? Can't decide if I want to make the trip. According to Steaduser.org the action will take place next Saturday and Sunday. That's a little more specific then June 7 - 10 posted on Airraces.org.

    Thanks,

    John

    Miss A and Goldfinger might be there as both pilots haven't raced in a few years. They might also be able to do their thing in September.

    Interesting that Diamondback will be there, in a sense, Stiletto is returning. (I'd rather it be as Stiletto however)

    I think Goldfinger and maybe some other stockers would be it. Miss A doesn't look like it'll be there. RARA allowing Unlimiteds to certify the week before Reno has changed the turnout at PRS. I think it's a good thing. All of the TFL group, Full Noise, and Bunny didn't have to attend PRS and that added 6 planes to the field during race week last year!

    And I'm still hoping Mark is qualifying to race Diamondback. I'm hesitant on it but who knows...

    PRS is generally Thursday through Sunday with most of the good stuff happening during Friday and Saturday. I'll keep you posted on what arrives. All I know so far is some sports, jets, and Diamondback

    PRS is indeed Thursday thru Sunday, however; flying will occur only on Saturday and Sunday. While I can't say who is attending, the numbers are as follows, as of today:

    Bips = 3
    F-1 = 4
    Jets = 11
    Sport = 28
    T-6 = 3
    UNL = 0 to 3

    Cheers all,

    Mike Brown and Doc Hisey will be there without their airplanes. No other unlimited pilots from what I am told.
