    Default Reno '21 Unlimited News

    Palm Springs says they're bringing the P-63 along with Bunny and their newest acquisition Man O' War to race this year

    Curious to see what else transpires, but this is a positive start to our field this year. We should also be seeing a few other warbirds that haven't raced yet that were planning on it in 2020.

    Some to think about -

    -Miss America's next set of mods to take on Dread
    -Sawbones' Furias style canopy as well as new prop and some other minor mods we haven't got to see yet. Feels like it's been years since Bones has been on the sticks
    -JT's Crusader and On Eagle's Wings (we haven't got to see her round the pylons full polish yet)
    -Bill Shepherd's Yak-3 that Dusty was going to race. Maybe Bill will bring her to PRS to get certified?
    -Dusty himself likely bringing one of his own planes
    -Rumors of POF possibly racing their new Bearcat??

    Here's to PRS!

    I haven't heard that yet, but good news! PRS should go on pretty normal then.

    Middle of June not sure which days yet. Doubtful any of them will be there this year, but rumors of Voodoo still wanting to go for the speed run and a potential return to Reno. Need Tsunami to reignite the spark... Maybe 2025.

    PRS will be held in two stages.

    First stage is Sunday 06Jun thru Wed 08Jun @1200hrs. This will feature F1, Sport and Jet classes.

    Second stages is Wed 08Jun @1201 thru Sat 11Jun. This will feature Bips, UNL, T6 and STOL.

    Reasoning is the break in 2020 necessitates additional time for both rookies as well as returning pilots.

    Anybody hear anything about Dan Martin?
    After the 2019 parade he reportedly said that he '...should have put the race parts and engine into "Grim Reaper" and gone for the win...'

    2021 looks to be a similar race field.

    I would insert the "Lon infamous" popcorn emote, but aafo doesn't have it... That would be... amazing!

    You and me both.

    A super stock Miss American and Ridge Runner both would bring smiles to Reno Air Race Week.
