HondaJet for day 29 of #1118planes by @kjdphoto1971 which is Biz Jet. The HondaJet did a really neat little demo at the 2018 Reno Air Races. Sleek, quiet and quite agile. - - - - #bizjet #hondajet #renoairraces #aviationphotography #avpics #aviation #igaviation #aviationgeek #nikonnofilter #nikon #nikonusa #d500

In the nose turret of the B-25 looking rather chuffed after our sunset flight over Reno, Nevada. I was sent this photo by a good friend Mick today. #reno #renonevada #renoairraces #flight #flying #b25mitchell #pbjmitchell #sunsetflight #usa #warbirds #aviation
Voodoo is a highly modified North American P-51 Mustang that was the 2013, 2014 and 2016 Unlimited-class champion of the Reno Air Races. The pilot for these wins was Steven Hinton, Jr of Chino, California. After Voodoo underwent further modifications including removal of the aircraft's racer paint scheme, and sponsored by Aviation Partners, Hinton made an attempt to break the 3 km World Speed Record of 528.33 mph (850.26 km/h) set by Rare Bear on August 21, 1989. The record attempt was set to occur on August 27, 2017 at an undisclosed location in Idaho but was delayed until the next day due to weather conditions. The attempt was finally flown on 2 September 2017, with the fastest of four runs recorded as 554.69 mph (892.69 km/h) and an average speed of 531.53 mph (855.41 km/h). While this broke the C-1e record set by Will Whiteside in the Yak-3U Steadfast in 2012, due to changes in record measurement standards the Rare Bear record was not bettered as it had to be beaten by at least 1% (533.6 mph). #renoairraces #reno #voodoo #p51 #warbirds #warbird #divebomber #mustang #a36 #aviation #aviationlovers #wwii #50cal #airplane #aircraft #fighterpilot #fighterplane #planes #worldwar2 #worldatwar #warthunder #flyinglegends #flying

A big thanks to Brenda and Andrew Gratz for coming up from Georgia yesterday and helping us fit and drill the horizontal leading edges. They also donated some much needed clecos, microstops, cleco clamps and rivet sets! Happy thanksgiving everyone!#tsunami #renoairraces #airrace #experimentalaircraft

Breakfast this morning at the Rocket Shop Cafe. Some great aviation photos and memorabilia. Breakfast was amazing, @ragazza_irlandese shared some of her chicken fried bacon with me..I think next visit I'm ordering it!😌 Got to see John take off while we were there. I miss it when the airport was busier. All the cool kids play at Minter Field. #rocketshopcafe #bakersfieldmunicipalairport #L45 #harmonrocket #warbirds #at6 #p51mustang #strega77 #algoss #rarebear #eddievanfossen #renoairraces #airports #aviation #flying #pilot #planes #propeller #experimentalaircraft

Very sad to hear of the crash of P-51D “Pecos Bill” and loss of pilot and passenger. I was very fortunate to be a part of the crew that restored this Mustang in 2007 after it was bought from longtime owner Bill Hubbs. With most flying Mustangs having multiple rebuilds and restorations, this P-51D 44-74445 N4132A was very original. It has Reno Air Race history too having raced as race 71 at Reno 1975 and Reno 1977. Lefty Gardner qualified it in 1977. Photos from 2007 nearing completion of restoration. #p51mustang #p51 #warbirds #renoairraces

I think I need more clamps!? #renoairraces #tsunami #leadingedge #raceplane
I have another request for Mike Patey...please build another Rutan Pond Racer. Except this time, replace the problematic Nissan-based V-6 piston engines with a couple of Pratt & Whitney PT-6 turboprops. Please note, however, that the restoration of a PZL M-15 Belphegor jet biplane crop duster to flight status should take priority over any and all other projects. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #avgeek #aircraft #aviation #pilot #avpic #avpics #instaplane #instapilot #instaaviation #flight #flying #plane #planes #airplane #instagramaviation #aircraftrecognition #cessnateur #pondracer #scaledcomposites @mike_patey @scaledcomposites #eaa #aopa #renoairraces @pt6nation @prattandwhitneyca
