Air Racing Over Reno - The National Championship Air Races were revived at Reno, Nevada, in 1964 after a 14-year hiatus. For the first time, this volume presents the races as seen by those who experienced it. He showcases everything from aircraft turning the pylons at nearly 500-mph speeds, to racers in the pits being fine-tuned for the next race, to the heartbreak when a $100,000 Rolls-Royce 12-cylinder engine is pushed beyond its limits – ending a team’s chance for the Gold race trophy and prize money. Also shown are the cockpits, nose art, and static display aircraft of the Reno Air Races.
