    Great Video. It shows what the F 1 pilots do in rounding the pylons.

    Really nice video -- thanks for posting! The problem with Vimeo is that the quality is so much better than the other channel. Hasn't Jason S been linking to Vimeo for years now?

    A question for the Press guys: What was the Press turnout like this year? The reason I ask is that there hardly seems to be much of any visible photographer presence in these videos. In the live feed there never seemed to be many of those horrid vests on the ramp. A few years ago there would have been 30 or 40 press people on inner 5 for a Silver race -- I don't see anything like that in this video.

    We apparently had more people than in previous years. The pylon busses were sometimes full, sometimes not, but they were also smaller. We seemed to spread out more as well. As for people on the ramp, you need to check out vests for 2 hr blocks now. For the biplane start on Saturday I was the only person who signed up, but the Haskins came out since there was plenty of space for other people. Things were different for sure, there were lots of people at the morning briefings, but where they went after that, I don't know.

    It' just interesting how few of you are visible. A few years ago you'd always find me and Victor standing at the base of the pylon with the judges, LOL.

    The e-mail list that was sent out of media photographers is 8 pages long. I can't stand very long so I hung out in the bleachers after F1/Biplanes Mon/Tuesday and all day the rest of the week.

    Maybe next year.......But then I will miss pictures like this. Yes, I know it doesn't have much prop blur.



    This one has none

    May all your bent wings be F2G Corsairs!

    There were changes to the number of people permitted at a particular pylon and the number of pylons that would permit photographers. This is driven by the FAA, not RARA.

    My understanding is the allocations this year were more robust than in years past. Meaning, greater number of shutter bugs at some pylons and more pylons accessible.

    Was that the case?

    Has anyone offered feedback to RARA Media Ops and/or The Foundry?

    I'd encourage any and all photographers on here who shoot at Reno to contact them with positive and constructive feedback.

    Don't make it a bitch session. If things can be improved, offer alternatives.

    Can't guarantee things will change even more but your voice will be heard.

    Good advice, Owen. In the past a lot of this was sort of anchored in cement. We had a usually workable set of places we could work, and there was little interest in changing things. By the time I left some changes were coming in such as T-6 pylon 5 (I think, but on the back of the course). In a time of flux such as it seems you have now pylon press folks do need to be letting RARA know things that might work better.
