    And their reply is exactly as I predicted.

    "Hi Tom, we appreciate your message. We only use footage that is given to us rights-free from the source or from a producer that authorizes it. If this was in our archive I can assure you we had permission. It may have been that the editor we hired for that video took it without your knowledge, for which we would be sorry. That editor is not part of our organization and we do not use him anymore. If you require, we can remove the video or your footage from it, with our apologies."

    The air race group didn't edit it, they farmed it out to someone who clearly doesn't care.. Just figured I would let everyone know.

    This is the video I was talking about.

    This video really highlights the need for the IF-1 guys to be on the lookout for rogue T-6 and Unlimited incursions on the course during their race!

    But it has Sandy Porter representing Section 3, so that's gotta count for something....right?

    I might add that I did get a personal response from the air race group. Super nice, and they didn't intend the video to turn out like it did anyway, hardly any F1 content. So they are victims here also. I suggested they may use my content however they want, but also agree that it isn't F1 racing, so probably not suited to their needs. Moral of the story, its all good, and I look for the series to succeed.

    I've been keeping track of this group since I first heard of them. Thus far, they seem like they are trying hard to do everything correctly. I'm hoping they can get past the start up issues anybody would have and get a series established. More Air Racing in any form can onl help the Reno Air Races.

    As of now we have 3-4 American planes and pilots going to represent the us, I'm trying to get #44 Judy to take over there and kick some international a$$, so far we have Steve Temple and his #87 Maddness , Jay Jones in #45 Quadnikle, Thom Richard and Kent Kassel will bring #99Margert June , and if KnottyGirl #69 is done in time to make the boat she will go but still working on getting Judy. It's my opinion that if this first race goes well we will have a full series of IF1 air racing again , then maybe Reno will start to realize we are not just a filler class, I was reading a book called gentlemen you have a race, in the 70's IF1 was just as popular as the unlimiteds, I don't know what happened, anyway this race in Spain should be an awesome boost for all of air racing .
