    Bob,

    Thanks for that bit of info. She did a outstanding job.

    Have to throw in my appreciation as well. Major Kristin Wolfe (callsign Beo) is not only a great pilot but having briefly met her and watching her with the fans, especially, the kids, she is also a great ambassador for the Air Force. It is clear she loves her team and they love her. Smiling, laughing, and cutting up until, as she says, "Showtime!"

    I have zero doubt I was in the presence of a future pilot because of her and the team.

    Was an honor and a pleasure to work with Maj. Wolfe and her entire team. The level of professionalism is inspiring and brings everyone's game up a knotch or two.

    Couple that with Steven Hinton flying the Heritage Mustang, it certainly kept me sharp!

    BTW...on Saturday (wind gusts up to 40kts), both Steven Hinton and Maj. Wolfe keyed the mic to say, "Boss, that was really rough." Hinton included (paraphrasing) "that's the roughest I've ever experienced here at Reno."

    And just to poke a little at RARA....not ONE performer scratched due to winds all week. Not one!

    Yeah, baby!

    HAH! Way to go there Boss! Yeah, Saturday was something else in terms of winds. All I could think of was imagine what one of those new America's Cup "flying" boats would be doing (not necessarily something good!)

    Yeah - The Major Wolfe/Steve Hinton combo was pretty special in so many ways but maybe most of all because both just love to fly at a level that the rest of us can only dream of.

    Great to shake hands - even with the backdrop of Sani-Hut row! Congrats on a clean event and great job to you and the entire crew. I do think the Honda Jet demo crew owes you guys a round though...

    Come on September 2022!

    2021 - VoS overload for a 4 year old.

    Even playing in the dirt gets boring after 6 hours.

    Taking kids into the show is a must, which we did on Sunday.

    Heres is his mom in VoS in 1991.

    VoS dirt is in their genes.

    I can just imagine 20 years from now, I'll be in my late 80s and we'll be there in introducing the 4th gen. to VoS.
