Reno 2010 Unlimited Gold Race
The Final Race was cancelled due to high winds, the Saturday race was upgraded to the finale. A Super Sport, Rapid Travel, Thunder Mustang crashed on landing after a blown engine. The pilot walked away, luckier than the biggest lottery winner. George Giboney you can pick my next ticket.
Too much weight for the helicopter!
Our pilot attempts to take more weight than he can handle with a "running" start. This is in Maui up on Haleakala. Building a hog and goat fence around the National Park. We were slinging supplies in for the weeks work.

Hawker Sea Fury Reno Unlimited Air Racer- WHAT AN AIR-MACHINE !
This video is of Rod Lewis' highly modified Hawker Sea Fury ("September Fury") taken at the Planes of Fame Museum at Chino airport, California. Steve Hinton is the pilot. The Sea Fury was a British shipboard fighter plane in the late 1940s and early 1950s. This aircraft now has an approximately 3,800 horsepower Wright 18-cylinder engine to replace the original 18-cylinder Bristol Centaurus. WOW! It has a custom-designed "boil off" oil-cooling system designed by Pete Law (head of thermodynamics for the Lockheed SR-71 program, among many others). This aircraft has been clocked at 508 miles-per-hour on the Reno, Nevada race course. Very great stuff!
