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





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."

2014 Reno Air Races: The Continuum
here's a collection of footage from our "behind the scenes camera". We are thrashing away editing our footage from the RED Epic camera. None of the footage in this video is from the RED, that will come later this year. I put this video together to help get the message out to support the Reno Championship Air Races for 2014. We at horsepower do not make a profit form these video's, they are just for all of us fans of the worlds fastest motorsport! Also just a shout out to the boys out at Pylon 4 who helped us out this year. Opts'1 makes it all happen! Also to the Precious Metal Team, the best damn fan friendliest team out there! and The boys at Recovery 1 for saving us a sport in the shade at the end of R28. Finally a Huge thanks to the Colonel, who allows us to film from the Air National Guard Base!





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.

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!
