    I in no way meant to disparage the good Doctor. His 'sponsorship story' is a great part of Reno legend.
    I was just offering some further background on the history of the airplane and why there was a sponsorship area 'available'.

    Back in the day when you had to have photo film specially developed, I had several photo lab tech's ask me why there were often "telephone poles" in the way of my pics..

    Nice shot. Love it. I know it well. Such a popular spot to hang out. Hot racer, cool crew, great neighbors, shade. Seriously though, I wonder how many hours of my life I’ve spent on that corner?
    You'll get your chance, smart guy!

    Brad,

    On shots like that, did the camera capture the focus of the plane before the pylon and stay locked in, or did you have a preset manual focus for the plane?

    When I see this photo I think of this classic Dean Martin song, except it would be "Standing on the corner watching all the planes fly by"
