Hughes H-1 Racer Recreation to Fly at Aviation Nation 2002
Nellis Air Force Base Air Show In Las Vegas, Nevada

click here for more information and photo featureJim Wright will demonstrate his recently completed Hughes Racer at Aviation Nation 2002, the Nellis Air Force Base Air Show, being held October 5-6, 2002 at Las Vegas, Nevada. This is a very new story and the exact appearance schedule is currently being worked out between World of Wings and Mr. Wright, who will fly the airplane during the upcoming show.

As of this writing, there are plans underway for a speed record attempt by Wright with the airplane at Aviation Nation. Exact details of this attempt are not available at this time due to the absolute newness of this exciting development.

The appearance at Nellis AFB will coincide with the World of Wings-produced Unlimited Air Racing demonstrations for Aviation Nation. This development is another story all by itself and we will have more detailed information on this subject here on AAFO.COM shortly; but as of now, we know that six of the top Unlimited Air Race teams have accepted invitations to appear at Nellis AFB, and all will be giving daily Air Racing demonstrations.

Aviation Nation 2002, is the first air show in a new series of planned annual Air Shows at Nellis AFB, Nevada, which is situated on the outskirts of Las Vegas. Aviation Nation 2002 is expected to attract 400,000 spectators over the two-day event.

Next year’s event, Aviation Nation 2003, will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Thunderbirds, the Centennial of Flight, and the 60th anniversary of Nellis AFB – all in one year. This show is expected to attract over a half million attendees and be one of the most publicized Air Shows in the world next year.

Does all of this leave you wanting more?
