Final Flight of the Ghost

This is a video of Jimmy Leeward's final race. This video shows no impact with the ground just the events leading up to the accident, segments of this footage have been turned over to the NTSB to help with the investigation. * New photos from the NTSB investigation http://www.ntsb.gov/news/events/2012/air_show/photos.html

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.

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.

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.

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!

Reno Air Races Accident NTSB Hearing (2012)
Credit: National Transportation Safety Board - NTSB WPR11MA454 Deteriorated Parts Allowed Flutter Which Led to Fatal Crash at 2011 Reno Air Races WASHINGTON - The National Transportation Safety Board determined today that deteriorated locknut inserts found in the highly modified North American P-51D airplane that crashed during the 2011 National Championship Air Races in Reno, Nevada, allowed the trim tab attachment screws to become loose, and even initiated fatigue cracking in one screw. This condition, which resulted in reduced stiffness in the elevator trim system, ultimately led to aerodynamic flutter at racing speed that broke the trim tab linkages, resulting in a loss of controllability and the eventual crash. On September 16, 2011, as the experimental single-seat P-51D airplane "The Galloping Ghost," traveling about 445 knots, or 512 mph, in the third lap of the six-lap race, passed pylon 8, it experienced a left-roll upset and high-G pitch up. During the upset sequence, the airplane's vertical acceleration peaked at 17.3 G, causing incapacitation of the pilot. Seconds later, a section of the left elevator trim tab separated in flight. The airplane descended and impacted the ramp in the spectator box seating area, killing the pilot and 10 spectators and injuring more than 60 others. "In Reno, the fine line between observing risk and being impacted by the consequences when something goes wrong was crossed," said NTSB Chairman Deborah A. P. Hersman. "The pilots understood the risks they assumed; the spectators assumed their safety had been assessed and addressed." Contributing to the accident were the undocumented and untested major modifications made to the airplane, as well as the pilot's operation of the airplane in the unique air racing environment without adequate flight testing. The nearly 70-year-old airplane had undergone numerous undocumented modifications. The modifications, designed to increase speed, included shortening of the wings, installation of a boil-off cooling system for the engine, increasing the elevator counterweights, modification of the pitch trim system, and changing the incidence of the horizontal and vertical stabilizers. Although the Federal Aviation Administration required that a flight standards district office be notified in writing of any major changes made to The Galloping Ghost before it could be flown, investigators could find no records that such notifications were made except for the installation of the boil-off cooling system. The undocumented major modifications were identified through wreckage examinations, photographic evidence, and interviews with ground crewmembers. In April, while the investigation was ongoing and after the NTSB's investigative hearing in January on air race and air show safety, the NTSB issued 10 safety recommendations to the Reno Air Racing Association, the National Air racing Group Unlimited Division, and the FAA. These recommendations addressed: requiring engineering evaluations for aircraft with major modifications; raising the level of safety for spectators and personnel near the race course; improving FAA guidance for air race and course design; providing race pilots with high-G training and evaluating the feasibility of G-suit requirements for race pilots; and tracking the resolution of race aircraft discrepancies identified during prerace technical inspections. Although no additional safety recommendations were issued today, the Board reclassified nine existing recommendations as described below: Eligibility Requirements for Aircraft with Major Modifications - recommendations A 12 9 and A-12-13 classified "Open—Acceptable Response" Prerace Technical Inspection Discrepancy Tracking - recommendation A 12 10, classified "Closed—Acceptable Action" Spectator Safety - recommendations A 12 14 and 15, classified "Closed—Acceptable Action" High G Training, G-Suit Feasibility for Pilots - recommendations A 12 11, -12, -16, and -17, classified "Closed—Acceptable Action" A tenth safety recommendation, issued to the FAA, which addressed air race and course design guidance was reclassified as "Open—Acceptable Response" on July 25, 2012. "It's good news for the air races that so many of our recommendations have been addressed," said Chairman Hersman. "We will continue to push for the full implementation of all of our safety recommendations."
