  • AirRace21 and Heather Penney ARE Racing!

    PFLUGERVILLE, TX – SEPTEMBER 7, 2011 – LiveAirShowTV was contacted by AirRace21 General Manager Peter Frey to announce that pilot Heather Penney and the team will be racing at the 2011 Reno National Championship Air Races. “This has been a stressful week for the team after being told to stand down for safety concerns with all of the L-29’s that have Viper engines”, said Frey. “Safety is the number one concern at the races. The plane we will be flying is the #76 of Greg McNutt. It is an L-29 that competed last year in the Silver Jet Race. McNutt is a friend of AirRace21 and Heather and when he heard about our dilemma he called and offered us his plane. In addition, Mike Mangold, the Vice-President of Racing Jets International and two-time Red Bull Air Racing World Champion, will be ferrying the plane from its home in Hollister, CA to Reno. He will also be the officially-designated 'second pilot' for the AirRace21 team and will be Heather's alternate at Reno.”

    As of this posting, no other information is available regarding the other jets, which include defending champion Curt Brown in #77 “Viper”, Mike Mangold in #12 “Euro Burner” and John Kokshoorn in #11 “Screaming Eagle.

    LiveAirShowTV will on the ramp beginning Wednesday, Sept 14th to bring air racing fans the “Inside Story” on all of the developments at this year’s races.
