Air show and air racing fans were treated to 9 races in 7 race classes, plus aerobatics from the Red Eagles, David Martin and Patty Wagstaff. The U.S. Navy Blue Angles performed including one of the last JATO take off’s from the C-130 support plane Fat Albert.
The live broadcast also included the Rolls-Royce Heritage Trophy presentation for the 11th annual National Aviation Heritage Invitational. This year’s overall winner was Chuck Wahl and his 1944 North American SNJ-5C. That presentation is part of the broadcast archive, but it also available for free on LiveAirShowTV’s YouTube page.
The broadcast has been segmented for easier navigation and viewing, and still includes all of the racing and flying, as well as interviews with the winners. The subscription price is now only $9.95 and can be purchased at www.LiveAirShowTV.com Just click on the Reno Air Races logo, and follow the directions.
Plans are in the works for a more complete schedule of air show and aviation event broadcasts in 2010. Watch for some special announcements in early December.
