Sunday Gold Race 2013
The final Gold race of 2013 saw a nice mix of fast planes ranging from the small giant killer Yak-11 'Czech Mate', all the way up to the beast called 'Dreadnought' the mighty super Sea Fury powered by the 28 cylinder R-4360. Steve Hinton flying Voodoo had the pole position while Matt Jackson flying Strega had to start on the outside of the formation in seventh position, on the start Matt wasted no time passing the other 5 racers but Steve in Voodoo was so far in front the only way Matt could've caught him is if Voodoo broke. This is the first win for Bob Button and team Voodoo, Bob and his wife have been campaigning Voodoo for 17 years with many ups and downs and nothing could've been better than winning Reno on the events 50th anniversary.

Pilot Matt Hall Skims Water During Red Bull Air Race Qualifying Session Windsor 2010
Credit: Red Bull Air Race © Red Bull Media House http://redbullairrace.com WINDSOR, Ontario - Australia's Matt Hall had a scare during the first Qualifying session at the Red Bull Air Race in Windsor on Saturday when his plane touched the surface of the Detroit River but the former RAAF pilot quickly recovered and returned safely to Race Airport. Hall was challenging for the lead in the first of two Qualifying sessions when he suffered an aerodynamic wing stall. His left wing skimmed the surface of the river that separates the United States and Canada. His right wheel cover hit the water as well but Hall was quickly able to regain control of his MXS-R aircraft and climb up away into the sky. "I felt I was having a fairly good run," Hall said. "I might have skipped twice on the water. It's a very disappointing result for me. It's the motor racing equivalent of touching the wall." Hall, who fought combat missions with the U.S. Air Force in Iraq, was confident his plane could be repaired in time for Qualifying 2 an hour later. He is hoping to get his third career podium in Windsor and has been in the top three in most training sessions this week. "The plane is damaged but will be recoverable," Hall said. "Our game plan is to get some rest for now. It will hit me harder in a few hours time. Everyone in aviation has been in some fairly tight situations before. I've been in tight situations before. I'm disappointed in myself for putting myself in that situation. We're okay but we'll move on from that. Everything's fine." Hall's plane was inspected in the air after his safety climb out by Nigel Lamb, another pilot who was flying in a holding pattern. Lamb said the damage all appeared to be superficial. Hall then landed safely back at the Race Airport in Windsor. "The main damage is on the right aileron," Hall said. "I think the plane is not that badly damaged. It is going to be a matter of replacing parts." Hall has two podiums in his career, including a second place finish in his home race in Perth, Australia in April. He joined the race in 2009 and became the most successful rookie in race history last year when he took third place overall. Hall is in fourth place so far this year.

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!

Thom Richard and Precious Metal going up for the teams qual run to set their place on the poll. Thom ended up with the 6th fasted speed of 440.385mph, not bad for having to put the semi stock engine in just before Reno due to a problem with the race engine.





Planes of Fame Airshow 2013 (part 1)
With the 2014 show just around the corner I thought I would put together a couple of videos from last year's awesome event. The Planes of Fame museum hosts one of the best airshows/warbird gatherings in the country, many unique and rare aircraft attend the annual show and 2013 was no exception. 'Lighting Strikes' was the 2013 theme and with that there were 5 flying P-38 lightning's and one on static display. The 2014 show will be held from May 3-4, more info can be found on their website http://planesoffame.org/ and also their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Planes-of-Fame-Air-Museum/23688958789?ref=ts

Unlimited air racer 'Furias' qual with crash landing, Reno 2012
This video is from 2012 when team Furias finished their several year resto/rebuild work and arrived on the ramp at Reno with this beautiful, freshly painted beast of an airplane. This was one of the most heavily modified super Sea Fury's to ever grace the ramp at Reno, she sported a very powerful race prepped Pratt & Whitney R-4360 Wasp Major engine that could pump out 4,000hp all day long, they also fitted her with a custom racing canopy. It also had a custom boil off cooling system where they removed the oil coolers from the leading edges of the wings and moved them inside the fuselage, to take care of all the engine and boiler data the team also had a custom telemetry system that was maintained by a McLaren race team technician. Unfortunately during their qualifying attempt they had a part failure in the landing gear system which led to a gear collapse on landing resulting in a very broken airframe, fortunately race pilot Matt Jackson made it out with only a few bumps and bruises.
