A brief observance of the awful crash of a modified P-51 Mustang at the Reno Air Races that, as of this writing, has claimed eleven lives. Its been twenty years since I’ve been to Reno, but as a pilot and someone who’s been enthralled with World War II flying machines his whole life, I hope they find a way to keep the old birds circling the pylons.
