    Swiss Thunder pulled up and out a bit before that, and then L-29 Miss Independance supposedly lost a wheel during landing.

    Exciting day! Glad all are safe.

    Sounds like they found the canopy parts they were hunting for. If it would have been possible to jam the airplane together before the first heat race, would they have been allowed to race with no laps flown?

    Not a mayday, but the black Vampire jet is out for a mechanical after dominating all weekend.

    And now the T-33 pace plane is out with a mechanical, so no pace start.
