    Default Congratulations Dennis Sanders!

    At long last Dennis won the Gold race in Dreadnaught! After fielding so many racers with so many different pilots over the years, Dennis gets to put his name on that big trophy! Good things happen to good people! Joel Swagger in 924 is 2nd, Mike Brown in Goldfinger is 3rd. Argonaught and Miss America mayday for both, both on the ground safely, hopefully nothing to serious. Now to wait 364 days till the next one. Thank the Lord (and Wayners) for AAFO.com!

    Race 29
    Full throttle till you see God, then turn left!

    Two maydays and no pace plane to fly cover. Apparently Dreadnought was the pace plane, how does that work again?
    Another Reno Air Race week in the bag and no serious mishaps. Nice and safe-nobody passing anyone or doing something awkward. Prediction-next year Dreadnought will win it again because even though it can't beat a really fast unlimited racer it can beat a bunch of museum pieces.

    CT-133 aborted during taxi out.. Wee Willy II rolled out and made a midfield T/O and didn't look like they were babying the engine either. Wee Willy chased miss a A during the mayday.

    I was fortunate enough to see Dennis run all his laps this year. I didnít see him put a single wing wrong. While it is the Buick, what a Buick it is. A fire breathing, 4360, short tail. What a machine. Dennis had it on rail all week, pounding out laps like he was at work. We all know itís nothing short of totally rad and incredibly difficult and nothing short of truly awesome to field a racer at Reno. He and the entire team deserve every bit of glory. Truly the battleship of Unlimiteds, Dreadnaught!
    You'll get your chance, smart guy!

    It was nice to see Dennis win at long last. That family has given so much to air racing. The Sanders brought their airplanes to Reno when a lot of others didn't. Reno wouldn't be the same without that family. Congratulations!

    Hit that dang donate button once in a while LOL!! Ad rev in the toilet this year, still self funding most of the site's expense, every LITTLE bit helps!!

    Sorry I missed getting to see a lot of folks this year, that double pneumonia that I went through last winter/spring kicked my ass a lot further down the road than I realized I did get some good shots of the morning races Saturday, however, I'll start posting as soon as possible.
