TALK OF THE TARMAC from Red Bull Air Race News
Hannes Arch (1st) was relieved that he was able to rally from behind to nip Paul Bonhomme, Nicolas Ivanoff and Nigel Lamb – all of whom were faster than the defending world champion in the Super 8 competition. Arch saved the best for last and had a sensational time of 1:24.60 on his final run -- a full 0.89 ahead of Bonhomme and by far the fastest time of the whole week.

I was always most interested in the nose art--especially that which appears on WWII aircraft because most of it follows the theme of beautiful, curvy bombshells and pinup girls. Despite my ...

The thing is, I've found that a lot of professional pilots have either forgotten or never really new the freedom of unencumbered flying in a sporty airplane. Often times their aviation background is in military flying or the very regimented training flying of a college aviation program. They have never experienced the combined joys of a responsive and eager airplane being flown without regard to destination, time, or demanding passengers/instructors. ...
