    Default Reno Air Races 2018 Monday fires burn, races go on

    Seems we are in a bit of a tinderbox down here! s again today threaten the Air Races with shared runways for fire crews.

    First couple of mages are self explanatory, just enjoying the beauty of mother nature's art juxtaposed with man made art... then Fred Telling just trying to get a damn bathroom break! Gotta LOVE this guy! Tanker crews getting replenished.. saw ground crew bring on ice chest, then I believe she hit it again! View of the fire that was visible on the hill about 3 pm ish..

    Apparently, some if not many air ops were cancelled today due to the tanker activity.. There was a plethora of fire fighting aircraft operating out of Reno Stead today, from Hercs to Smurfs to the crop duster size close ground support AC... sorry, did not want to swap out lenses to get ideal photos of the operational firefighters..

    Was a good show watching them work tho!

    I'm going to try to find the energy to post something daily.. weather report for tomorrow has me thinking of nice excuse for a day off.... As far as I can tell, the fires and tanker activity wound up killing any quals for the UL lineup...

    I know you guys will get everything I miss! I'm just having fun shooting whatever makes me feel good at the time
