    For all the three blade fans...

    Not as sharp as I'd like, but I love that pylon 8 angle. It's an experience to stand there and have this thing come over your head at 490mph! It's an impossible place to take Gold Race photos, but pylon 8 is the best place on the field to really experience a Gold Race.

    Count me as one who liked the 3-bladed Bear. Thanks for sharing that one! The sound that beast made at speed, 50 feet over my head on Outer 6, was a bone-rattlng, deep baritone reverberation like I've never heard before...or sadly, since.

    Thought I had one very similar in my collection but, no. It's the 4-blade. What year did they run the 3-blade?

    Loved Outer 8 but unless you're into silhouettes of airplanes and lens flare, it's not a good place in the PM. Always wondered why it was so popular for the Media folks at that time of day.

    2013 - We followed Thom's journey from Florida to Reno. He landed with minutes to spare for entry.

    Plus was the first time we got to see the new canopy.
